Valley Medical Group Patient News

February 25th, 2021

 

Dear Valley Medical Group Patients and Families,

Massachusetts is making slow progress in vaccinating our population against COVID. Nearly 16% of us have secured a first dose of vaccine and almost 6% are fully immunized. Unfortunately supply and weather delays have caused difficulty for many of us in securing doses, even as the Commonwealth has made 1 million more citizens eligible for vaccines last week. Massachusetts has also made a significant commitment to increasing vaccine delivery through dedicated systems like pharmacies and mass public vaccination sites. While this change is intended to increase efficiency and make doses available to those at greatest risk, I am disappointed that it has significantly curtailed access to vaccines through primary care offices like Valley Medical Group. I am sorry to report that, at this time, we do not expect to receive any more COVID-19 vaccine to administer to patients who have not already received their 1st dose from us. We plan to offer the 2nd vaccine dose to patients we have already immunized as supply is released to us from the state.  
 
If you are eligible, we strongly encourage you to go to the state website at vaxfinder.mass.gov to schedule an appointment at a participating vaccination site. New appointments are posted weekly on Thursdays for the mass vaccination sites, and more regularly at some smaller sites. If you are unable to secure an appointment, please continue to check the website.
 
You may also call 2-1-1, the Mass Vaccine Scheduling Resource Line, Monday through Thursday, 8:30 AM to 8:00 PM and Friday through Sunday, 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM. Follow the prompts for assistance scheduling an appointment. 
 
There is good news on the horizon. A third highly effective and safe COVID vaccine just received emergency authorization and will provide 20 million additional doses by the end of March. We continue to vaccinate around 1.4 million Americans a day. Valley Medical Group intends to be a part of that effort. We will reach out as soon as we receive additional supplies of vaccine to begin scheduling new doses. Please resist the temptation to call or portal to ask about vaccine availability; we rely on these tools to communicate with our patients about health concern and to schedule visits.
