COVID-19 Vaccines

  • This is our best shot to keep our schools safe and open. APS strongly recommends all students, staff and faculty become fully vaccinated and get all eligible boosters.

    At this time, fully vaccinated is defined by the state as two weeks following the completion of the Pfizer or Moderna series or two weeks following a single dose of Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine.

    Get Vaccinated

    Children six months and older who live or go to school in Massachusetts can now get vaccinated. The vaccine is safe, free and effective. No identification or insurance is required. Visit to schedule an appointment today.

    Disability-friendly vaccine events for people with disabilities or sensory support needs ages six months and older are available. Visit to view all sites and dates. These events have additional clinical support and strategies as well as interpreters to help people to get their vaccination as comfortably as possible. Appointments are encouraged, and walk-ups will be accepted.

    Throughout this August and September, DPH is offering free family-friendly vaccine clinics to prepare teachers, staff, students, and family members for going back to school. No ID, health insurance or appointment is needed at these clinics. Information about these vaccination clinics and others across the state is available online at VaxFinder.

    Get Boosted

    The COVID-19 vaccine boosters are free, safe and effective. We encourage all eligible employees and students to get a COVID-19 booster. Visit to schedule an appointment today.
