SPRINGFIELD, MA (WGGB/WSHM) — The state has announced two more COVID-19 booster shot locations and one is located in Springfield.

This week, eligible residents will be able to receive the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine at Springfield’s booster clinic at One Federal Street.  Another site is located in Lowell.

Officials said both clinics will have the capacity to give out 300 doses a day with potential for more if demand requires it.

Currently, the CDC recommends booster shots for:

  • Individuals 65 years of age and older
  • Individuals 18-64 years of age at risk for severe COVID-19 due to certain underlying medical conditions as defined by the CDC
  • Individuals 18-64 years of age who are at increased risk for COVID-19 because of occupational or institutional settings

Appointments at the Springfield site can be made online at vaxfinder.mass.gov.  Walk-ins will also be accepted.  Those who would like an appointment and have difficulty accessing the internet can call the state’s COVID-19 Resource Line at 211 Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
