Maine residents age 60 and older are now eligible for vaccination against Covid-19 as part of Phase 1b.
Because Maine’s supply of vaccine is limited, appointments may not be immediately available and will be scheduled on a rolling basis.
There is no charge for the Covid-19 vaccine, but you should be prepared to provide any insurance information and proof of eligibility at the vaccination site. Additional vaccination sites will be added in the coming weeks.
If you are currently eligible under, contact your employer or professional association about vaccination.
The Covid-19 vaccine requires two doses. You must receive a vaccine from the same provider, either Pfizer or Moderna, for both doses. When scheduling your second dose, make an appointment with the same vaccination site where you received your first dose and follow their process for signing up for the second dose.
The Johnson & Johnson vaccine is also available at some sites.
Some locations are now accepting or preparing to accept appointments for Maine residents age 60 and over. Appointment availability is dependent on vaccine supply. These listings are subject to change and will be updated regularly. A complete list of vaccination location can be found at https://www.maine.gov/covid19/vaccines/vaccination-sites.
