Massachusetts residents can now preregister for a vaccine appointment under the new system launched by the state today. Eligible residents who have preregistered will be contacted when it is their turn via their preferred method of communication (email, text message or phone call).
At this time, preregistration is only for the state's seven mass vaccination sites. Officials said eligible individuals may continue to seek appointments at the other vaccination sites even if they preregister.
When someone becomes eligible for a vaccine under state guidelines, they will be contacted by the system based on the order in which they preregistered and on dose availability at the nearest mass vaccination site.
Officials said that individuals will get one notification on the day before they can sign up and then will get a link good for 24 hours that can be used to book an appointment for the following week.
The seven Mass vaccination locations include:
- Gillette Stadium
- Fenway Park (moving to Hynes Convention Center March 27)
- Reggie Lewis Center
- Danvers DoubleTree Hotel
- Natick Mall
- Eastfield Mall, Springfield
- Former Circuit City, Dartmouth
- *Other sites are expected to be added to the preregistration system in April
