COVID-19 Vaccine Scheduling

[En Enspañol]

 

The Lynn Community Health Center and Lynn Department of Public Health have partnered to open a free COVID-19 vaccination clinic for eligible people who live and work in Lynn and Nahant, (or are patients of Lynn Community Health Center) at Lynn Vocational Technical Institute Field House located at 80 Neptune Blvd.

Due to high demand and constrained vaccine supply, COVID-19 vaccination appointments are limited at this time. More appointments will be available based on supply from the Federal Government. Appointments will be added on a rolling basis, so please check back if you do not see any availability at this time.

Individuals are asked to bring the following information to their appointment:

  1. A signed copy of the Commonwealth’s Self Attestation form in a hard copy or electronically to demonstrate that you are included in one of the state designated eligible groups/phases. If you do not have one upon arrival, copies will be available on site.
  2. A government-issued identification or license, employer-issued ID card that includes your name and title, or recent paystub or utility bill to prove that you live or work in Lynn or Nahant (or the state if you are a LCHC patient).
  3. Health Insurance card

Lack of driver’s license, social security number, or insurance is not a barrier to receiving the vaccine.

You can view other vaccination sites with available appointments in our area if appointments are not available below.
