Massachusetts hits 1,000,000 COVID-19 vaccinations, vaccine appointment tool released, Fall River releasing spots



BOSTON – The Baker-Polito Administration today launched a new tool to help residents more easily find COVID-19 vaccination locations available to all residents and view appointment availability for some sites. The tool, called the COVID-19 Vaccine Finder, enables residents to search for a vaccination location and view appointment availability before scheduling. The tool can be accessed via the state’s vaccination website at or directly at

The tool enables users to search for locations near them by entering their ZIP code, city/town name, or the name of a vaccination location. It also allows residents to filter results by site type, such as mass vaccination locations, locations run by local health departments, retail pharmacies or health care locations.

The COVID-19 Vaccine Finder displays all vaccination locations open to all residents across the Commonwealth, but only includes appointment availability details for mass vaccination locations and some sites operated by local health departments at this time.

Visibility for additional sites will be built up over time.

Once a user selects a vaccination location, residents can view:

-Available appointments (currently select sites only)
-Vaccines offered (Pfizer/Moderna)
-Directions via Google Maps and MBTA Trip Planner information
-Specific site instructions and whether the site is indoors or outdoors
-Disability access information

The tool updates appointment availability every 5 minutes for participating vaccination locations. In the coming weeks, availability for additional locations will be added. Appointment availability is based on supply from the federal government and remains limited. The tool is available in a wide range of languages. The COVID-19 Vaccine Finder was built as part of an ongoing partnership between Project Beacon and the Commonwealth’s COVID-19 Response Command Center.

The Commonwealth has hit a vaccine milestone of more than one million COVID-19 vaccine doses administered to residents. As of Thursday night, 1,034,018 doses have been administered across the state.

The Administration has surpassed the first benchmark set for Phase 2 vaccinations, 242,000 per week capacity, and administered 242,000 doses administered since Sunday.

Mayor Paul Coogan and Director of Health and Human Services Tess Curran would like to inform residents of Fall River that approximately 380 appointments for the City of Fall River’s Covid-19 Vaccine Site will go live on at 2:00p.m. today, 2/12/21.

These appointments are expected to be filled quickly.

These appointments will take place on Wednesday, February 17th between 9:00a.m. and 3:30p.m. at the Fall River vaccine site, located in Bristol Community College’s G building.
