[ARCHIVED] COVID-19 Vaccine: Current Phase Information


Due to changes in the statewide distribution of the limited supply of COVID-19 vaccine, the Town of Amherst is unable to schedule additional first shot vaccination clinics. At this time, all persons who have already signed up for or received a first shot at an Amherst clinic should still be able to receive their second vaccination here as well. 

  • Please continue to look for your first dose appointments on the State Vaccine Finder website at
  • If you need assistance registering for an appointment, please call 2-1-1 

If you have access to a vaccine through another available clinic, please take that opportunity. If your primary care provider, pharmacy, or another Massachusetts Vaccination Site has availability, you may go ahead and sign up there. We want our community to be vaccinated as soon as possible! 

Vaccine also may be available from other clinics within the State, we encourage you to review the Interactive Map for Massachusetts Vaccine sites here.

In the meantime, there is still a lot you can do to prepare and take care of yourself.  

Stay up to date  

Keep practicing good hygiene by wearing your mask, avoiding large gatherings & keeping social distance. 

Get tested regularly for free at UMass Amherst. It’s quick, easy, and provides peace of mind. Sign up for an appointment at
