 If you believe you're currently eligible to receive the vaccine, here's how to make an appointment at Martha's Vineyard Hospital:

Review the "When Can I Get A COVID-19 Vaccine" page on the mass.gov website to determine eligibility (graphic below), when you are eligible complete the sign-up form at the MV Hospital website (MV residents and seasonal residents). You will receive your appointment for the COVID-19 vaccine via email from Martha's Vineyard Hospital. If you feel more comfortable completing the registration form in person, you can do so at MVH (at the front desk) or at one of many community organizations (Councils of Aging, Libraries, etc).

If you are a caregiver of a person 75 or older (not a licensed caregiver) please fill out and submit the COVID-19 Massachusetts Vaccination Attestation Form on the mass.gov website—you will receive an email from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health confirming your eligibility. MV Hospital is not currently authorized to vaccinate caregivers. You would have to visit one of the mass vaccination sites in Massachusetts to get vaccinated.

If you are a veteran you can get vaccinated through the VA system (regardless of age). You can contact the Hyannis VA Health Care to get an appointment.

IMPORTANT - To Patient Gateway patients only: You may receive a message through Patient Gateway that suggests the Mass General Brigham will be suspending its vaccination program in the near future due to a lack of supply.  PLEASE NOTE - this message DOES NOT apply to Patient Gateway patients at Martha's Vineyard Hospital. We will continue to receive vaccine supply from the state because we are recognized by the Department of Public Health as a rural vaccine delivery site.

As doses of the vaccine become available, you will be notified of appointment details by MVH either by email or by phone.

Please see the current state phases of vaccination below, but note that this is an evolving document, and could very well change in the weeks ahead. Visit Mass.gov/COVIDvaccine regularly to stay up to date on vaccination plans.
