COVID-19 Vaccine Information

The University is in the process of receiving COVID-19 vaccine doses and will follow Massachusetts guidelines on prioritization. For more information about the Harvard’s vaccine distribution, please visit the Harvard University Health Services website. The vaccine is not mandatory at this time but highly recommended.

Read Harvard University Health Services director Giang Nguyen’s recent update (1/19/21) on vaccine availability and planning for the Harvard community.

Harvard is currently in Phase 2, Group 1 of the State’s distribution plan

This includes:

  • Community members 75 and over
  • Anyone who qualified in Phase 1 (healthcare workers, first responders etc.)

At this time, HUHS does not have sufficient supply to offer vaccine to community members 65-74. As more supply is received, HUHS will contact individuals directly. At this time, anyone 75 and over is eligible. If you are a community member over 75 and have not received a call or email, please call our vaccine hotline at 617-495-5711 (press 1).
Once we have offered vaccine to community members 75 and over, we will offer vaccine to our patients 65 and older.

Individuals who do qualify for Phase 2 are encouraged to contact their Primary Care Physician or look at State vaccination sites.

Up next: Community member 65-74, HUHS patients with 2 or more comorbidities.
