Massachusetts is vaccinating against the COVID-19 virus. Vaccines work with your immune system so your body will be ready to fight the virus if you are exposed. People ages 6 months+ who live, work, or study in Massachusetts should get a COVID-19 vaccine or booster. Search vaccines.gov for vaccination appointments or find a mobile vaccination clinic.
City-sponsored PCR testing and testing at Stop the Spread sites are no longer offered for Massachusetts residents. You may be able to be tested for COVID-19 at a doctor's office or hospital. Free COVID at-home COVID test kits are available at City Hall, Public Library, Police Station and North Shore YMCA while supplies last. You can still order four free COVID-19 test kits from the federal government: https://www.covid.gov/tests.
