VACCINATION ADVICE FOR ROWLEY RESIDENTS

 

Every Resident aged 12 and up is eligible to be vaccinated against COVID-19.  A more transmissible form of the virus (the Delta variant) is widely present in this area (Essex County, Massachusetts.)  Vaccination is a highly effective preventative against serious illness or death from the virus.

 

HOW TO GET VACCINATED

CALL YOUR PRIMARY CARE PHYSICIAN:  Call your doctor if you have any questions as to whether you should be vaccinated.  Ask whether your provider can vaccinate you.  The United States government is paying for all vaccinations so payment shouldn’t be a question!  If your provider is not doing vaccinations, there are other resources.

VETERANS:  The Department of Veterans Affairs has urged all Veterans to consider being vaccinated as a way to continue to serve the USA.  All Veterans may be vaccinated at VA healthcare facilities whether or not they are eligible for VA healthcare, along with their spouses and caregivers.  GO TO: https://www.va.gov/health-care/covid-19-vaccine/

PHARMACIES:  Vaccination is readily available at local pharmacies, and chain pharmacies.  Please call them to determine the best way to proceed.  Below is a partial list of nearby stores offering vaccination.

WEAR A MASK

Effective July 30: The Massachusetts Department of Public Health has issued a new mask advisory in light of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s updated guidance. Fully vaccinated individuals are advised to wear a mask or face covering when indoors (and not in your own home) if you have a weakened immune system, or if you are at increased risk for severe disease because of your age or an underlying medical condition, or if someone in your household has a weakened immune system, is at increased risk for severe disease, or is an unvaccinated adult. Masks are still mandatory for all individuals on public and private transportation systems (including rideshares, livery, taxi, ferries, MBTA, Commuter Rail and transportation stations), in healthcare facilities and in other settings hosting vulnerable populations, such as congregate care settings.
