Getting Your COVID-19 Vaccine at Dimock
The Dimock Center is a vaccine distribution site that follows the state priority guidelines. Call 617-442-8800 ext. 2025 to schedule an appointment for when you are eligible for the vaccine.
An important message to our patients: For now, we will only offer the Moderna COVID-19 vaccines. The US government has paused use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine because six people (out of 7 million vaccinations) experienced a possible serious side effect. Scientists are now reviewing the cases to make sure it is safe. We will let you know what they decide. As always, if you have severe side effects after getting vaccinated, please contact your provider.

About the COVID-19 Vaccines
The Center for Disease Control (CDC), our nation’s health protection agency, states that “the best protection from COVID-19 will be a combination of getting a COVID-19 vaccine, wearing a mask, staying at least 6 feet away from others, avoiding crowds, and washing your hands often. No one tool alone is going to stop the pandemic.”
