All Mass. Residents Age 16+ Eligible for COVID-19 Vaccines by April 19

BOSTON — All residents of Massachusetts age 16 and older will be eligible for a coronavirus vaccine beginning April 19.

Republican Gov. Charlie Baker’s administration says that before that date, residents age 60 and older, as well as workers considered essential, can get a vaccine starting March 22. Those 55 and older can get a shot beginning April 5.

The essential workers eligible for a vaccination starting March 22 include those who work at supermarkets and convenience stores, restaurant workers, transit employees and funeral home workers.

The administration said Wednesday in a statement that it’s received assurances from the federal government “that an increased vaccine supply will be available to states soon.”
