COVID-19 Updates & Vaccine Information

Schedule Your Appointment

If you have received the first dose of the vaccine at a different location and would like to make your second dose appointment at MVH, please call 508-684-4500.

When scheduling your first vaccine appointment, please ensure that you will be available 3-4 weeks later to receive your second vaccine dose. As of now, we must schedule your second vaccine appointment 3-4 weeks after your first shot per guidance from the vaccine manufacturer. If you know you will not be available or are uncertain, please do not schedule a vaccine appointment at this time. Thank you for your cooperation.

Limited appointments will be available for the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine on Friday, 5/21 for patients 18+.

Due to vaccine supply constraints, very limited dose 1 vaccine appointments will become available Saturday morning. We are hopeful that we will receive a greater supply in the coming weeks.

Prepare for Your Appointment

Please be on time for your appointment. We have limited space at the hospital, so we ask you not to show up too early and not late. We appreciate your cooperation.

We will ask when you get to the hospital (to receive your vaccine) to follow certain safety protocols – which are mandatory.

We do so to protect not only you but our staff and others in the hospital.

  • Everyone must wear an approved hospital mask when in the hospital. The mask or face covering someone brings with them is not acceptable per our safety protocols.
  • There will be a screening process when you arrive which includes a few questions, such as are you feeling well today, and do you have a cough, for example.
  • You will be asked to sanitize your hands when you arrive.

Thank you for your help following these simple steps to keep everyone safe. 

For answers to frequently asked questions- including questions about allergies, pregnancy and breastfeeding, and immunocompromised individuals- please visit the Mass General Brigham Vaccine Information page.

Visiting Martha's Vineyard Hospital

Visiting Our Facility

The safety of our patients, staff, and community is very important to us. Please read our visitor policy before arriving at our facility.

Types of visitors

Essential visitors are visitors for patients receiving end-of-life care.

Support persons include birth partners, parents/caregivers of pediatric patients, attorneys of patients, and designated support persons for patients with disabilities.

Essential visitors and support persons do not need to comply with the Massachusetts travel mandate to visit.

Non-essential visitors are all other visitors 18 and older. They must comply with the Massachusetts travel mandate to visit.

For inpatient visitors

Martha's Vineyard Hospital allows one visitor per patient per day. This is for patients not isolated for suspected or confirmed COVID-19 in the units that are able to meet the requirements below.

For outpatient visitors

At this time, visitors are not allowed in outpatient areas (areas for patients who are not admitted to the hospital, for example, in the emergency room, surgical or procedural rooms, or clinics).

There are very limited exceptions for support persons. One support person is allowed for patients with disabilities and patients under age 18.

Other support persons need to be approved before the appointment. Please call the clinic for approval before the appointment. Note: Clinics will do their best to accommodate support persons but may be limited by physical space or other constraints.

Some reasons that you might want to request a support person are if you:

  • Need help understanding patient instructions.
  • Are getting end-of-life care.
  • Are receiving or anticipating maternity care or are in the process of family planning.
  • Are coming from a correctional facility, and your support person is the corrections officer. 

If you cannot find childcare and need to bring your child under the age of 18 years old with you, the child will need to join you in the exam room. Children must be supervised at all times.

All support persons must meet the requirements below.

Requirements

Non-essential visitors

  • All non-essential visitors who wish to enter a Mass General Brigham hospital or doctor’s office must comply with the Massachusetts travel order. Please visit Mass.gov for more details.

All visitors (essential and non-essential) and support persons

  • All visitors (essential and non-essential) and support persons will be screened for symptoms of possible COVID-19 infection (fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, chills, muscle aches, or new onset of loss of taste or smell). No individuals with any symptoms are allowed. Visitors (essential and non-essential) and support persons with active COVID-19 infection will not be permitted. Visitors (essential and non-essential) and support persons on the day of the visit can use the Mass General Brigham Prescreen tool or complete a screening in person.
  • All visitors (essential and non-essential) and support persons must wear a hospital-issued mask at all times while in the hospital; non-hospital masks or other personal protective equipment are not permitted. All visitors (essential and non-essential) and support persons must perform hand hygiene upon entry to the facility.
  • Visitors (essential and non-essential) and support persons will not be permitted if the visitation poses a significant infection control risk to the patients, visitor, or staff.
