COVID-19 Vaccine Information

COVID-19 Vaccines

Martha’s Vineyard Hospital is now offering vaccines to those 6 months and older at the MVH drive-through testing tent by the flagpole. Appointments for the updated bivalent booster are available to patients 12 and older.

Please schedule the appropriate appointment for the vaccine brand you want to receive. We can only guarantee that the brand you selected when making the appointment will be available at the time of your visit.
Scheduling the incorrect vaccine dose or brand (ex. scheduling a booster appointment to receive the first dose of vaccine) can result in the appointment being canceled. First and second doses are offered on specific dates as to not overwhelm vaccine staff administering boosters.

New appointments open weekly on Fridays at 4pm. 

*On the week of September 26, appointments will open Thursday at 4 pm.

We encourage people to continue checking the website if there aren’t any openings initially. Appointments may become available if there are cancellations or any other changes.

Thank you for your patience.

Second boosters are available to:

People are considered to be moderately or severely immunocompromised (have a weakened immune system) due to several types of conditions and treatments. Examples include:

  • Been receiving active cancer treatment for tumors or cancers of the blood
  • Received an organ transplant and are taking medicine to suppress the immune system
  • Received chimeric antigen receptor (CAR)-T-cell therapy (a treatment to help your immune system attach to and kill cancer cells) or received a stem cell transplant (within the last 2 years)
  • Moderate or severe primary immunodeficiency (such as DiGeorge syndrome, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome)
  • Advanced or untreated HIV infection
  • Active treatment with high-dose corticosteroids or other drugs that may suppress their immune response

Talk to your primary care provider about COVID-19 vaccination and your medical condition.
