COVID-19 Vaccine Information

En Espanol

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued Emergency Use Authorizations (EUA) to permit the use of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for people who are 16 years old and older and the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine for people who are 18 years old and older.

Lawrence General Hospital continues receiving limited quantities of the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. The hospital is following the three-phase COVID-19 vaccine prioritization guidance from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. During Phase One of the distribution plan, we continue vaccinating health care workers with the priority being frontline workers in patient facing areas of the hospital. Beginning January 11, 2021, the hospital expects to receive addition doses and will begin expanding vaccinations to first responders and other health care professionals in Essex County.

While Phase One focuses on high-risk, front line health care workers, Lawrence General Hospital is eager to receive additional shipments of approved vaccine and looks forward to providing the vaccine to vulnerable populations and other people included in Phase Two and Phase Three of the state’s vaccination plan once supply allows. We continue to maintain close contact with state public health officials on their long-term plans for vaccinating people included in Phase Two and Phase Three. To find out when you may be able to receive a COVID-19 vaccine, visit
