COVID-19 Vaccine Scheduling

[En Español]

The Lynn Community Health Center and Lynn Department of Public Health have partnered to continue offering FREE COVID-19 vaccination clinics at a variety of locations! 

Is the Vaccine free? 

  • Yes! The COVID-19 is free to everyone. 

Do I need health insurance? 

  • No. You do not need health insurance to get the COVID-19 vaccine. 
  • If you are interested, we can help you get health insurance through our enrollment team. 

Can I go to ANY location? 

  • Yes! You can get the vaccine at any site. You do not have to be a patient of LCHC or a resident of Lynn. 
  • You do not have to be in any way affiliated with the community locations or religious institutions in order to get the vaccine there. 

What do I need to bring to get vaccinated?

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

  • A government-issued identification or license, employer-issued ID card that includes your name and title
  • Health Insurance card
  • To save time when you arrive for your appointment, complete and bring copies of the two (2) forms:

    If you cannot download and print these forms, they will be supplied to you upon arrival!

    1. Patient Consent and Pre-Vaccination Checklist
    2. Patient Registration Form

What do I need to know about vaccinations for 12–17 year olds?

If you are between 12 and 17 years old, please bring a guardian with you.  If you are age 16 or 17 and you are unable to bring someone with you, we will accept written permission, please print and sign this consent form and bring it with you to your vaccine appointment.  We cannot currently accept patients age 12-15 years old without a guardian present.

  • Please check the schedule before arriving or booking your appointment to confirm you are coming when we have Pfizer available. You can call 781-595-7747.  
    • Pfizer is the only vaccine approved for use in those ages 12 through 17, so it is important to confirm this information. We cannot give persons 12 through 17 the Moderna or J&J vaccine. 
  • Please use this guardian consent form. 

How do I make an appointment? 

  • Walk-In’s accepted at all sites below.

  • Residents can also schedule appointments through the Lynn Vaccine Call Center by calling 781-595-7747 on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 8:00am-8:00pm, Thursday from 10:00am-8:00pm, Saturday 8:30am-5:00pm, and Sunday 10:15am-5:00pm. Representatives are available in English and Spanish.

What if I need transportation assistance?

  • If you have insurance through MassHealth, you can get help with transportation to your COVID-19 vaccine appointment, even if you don’t usually receive transportation assistance to regular doctor’s appointments. You qualify if you use one of these services: MassHealth Limited, MassHealth Family Assistance, the Children’s Medical Health Safety Net.
  • Members with MassHealth Standard, CommonHealth and CarePlus can also get transportation to vaccine appointments, as well as other medical appointments, through MassHealth.
  • Those enrolled in a Senior Care Option or OneCare plan, or PACE, should continue to use the transportation services offered by their managed care provider.
  • Please call 1-800-841-2900 to schedule your transportation to your vaccine appointment.
  • If you normally get help with transportation to doctor’s appointments, the most common and fastest way to get approval is to contact your health care provider and have them submit a transportation request for you.

    COVID-19 Booster Shot Information

    Do I need a booster shot?

    • At this time, booster shots are only recommended for certain immunocompromised patients. If you think you qualify, you should contact your primary care provider to confirm.
    • In general, most persons do not need or qualify for a booster shot at this time. We will follow CDC guidance and update as necessary.
    • The CDC does not recommend additional doses for any other population at this time. If you are fully vaccinated, there is nothing else you need to do. We will provide updates if there are recommendations for additional doses of the COVID-19 vaccines for people who are not moderately to severely immunocompromised.   

    Why do some people need a booster shot?

    • Some immunocompromised people don’t always build the same level of immunity after vaccination the way non-immunocompromised people do.
    • People who are moderately to severely immunocompromised are especially vulnerable to COVID-19 because they are more at risk of serious, prolonged illness. 

    Who qualifies for a booster shot right now? You may qualify if you…

    • have been receiving active cancer treatment for tumors or cancers of the blood 
    • received an organ transplant and are taking medicine to suppress the immune system 
    • received a stem cell transplant within the last 2 years or are taking medicine to suppress the immune system 
    • moderate or severe primary immunodeficiency (such as DiGeorge syndrome, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome) 
    • have advanced or untreated HIV infection 
    • are undergoing active treatment with high-dose corticosteroids or other drugs that may suppress your immune response 

    If I qualify, when should I get the booster?

    • 28+ days (4 weeks) after 2nd dose of Moderna or Pfizer 
      • While you should try to get the same brand as your first two doses, there is no evidence that shows you can’t “mix brands” if the first brand is not available.
    • No current indication for additional J&J dosing

    If you have recently had another immunization, please wait at least 14 days from that immunization to schedule your COVID-19 vaccine appointment.

    If you have a history of an anaphylactic reaction to an injection in the past (swelling of tongue, lips or throat, wheezing or shortness or breathing requiring and Epi-pen or emergency medical treatment), please consult an allergist before booking your COVID-19 vaccine appointment.

    For your health and safety, it is very important that you get the same brand of vaccine (e.g. Pfizer or Moderna) for your first and second dose. The Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines are not interchangeable with each other. The safety and efficacy of a mixed-product series have not been evaluated. Both doses of the series should be completed with the same product. Visit CDC.gov for more information.

    To ensure this happens, please book an appointment at the same location where you received your first dose.

    If you are unable to get your second dose at the same location where you received your first dose, please call us at (781) 581‑3900 and we will do our best to accommodate your request.

    For your health and safety, it is very important that you get your second dose in the recommended timeframe.

    If you receive the Pfizer vaccine, it is recommended you get your vaccine 21 days after your first dose.

    If you receive the Moderna vaccine, it is recommended you get your vaccine 28 days after your first dose.

    The type of vaccine you receive will depend on what is available on the day of your appointment. Please ensure you are available to return for your second dose 21 or 28 days after your scheduled appointment.

    You are eligible for the vaccine. Please schedule your appointment:
