A limited supply of the updated Moderna Spikevax COVID-19 vaccine will be available Thursday from the Hopkinton Health Department.
A VCF flu/COVID clinic is scheduled for Thursday (Nov. 9) from 3-5 p.m. in the lower level of Town Hall.
This vaccine formula, designed to target the current circulating form of COVID-19, recently was approved and universally recommended for everyone ages 6 months and older.
People who do not have health insurance or have a health plan that does not cover the cost of vaccination can get a free vaccine from the Health Department. All children — even those privately insured — are eligible for the Vaccines for Children program and may receive the vaccine for free from the Hopkinton Health Department.
For those individuals who have not received a COVID-19 vaccine in the past two months, the Hopkinton Health Department recommends getting the updated COVID-19 vaccine for protection this fall and winter. Vaccines are available for any uninsured adult or any child ages 12-18, regardless of insurance. Appointments for this age group will be added to the VCF clinic on Thursday.

There is no anticipated date yet for the new SpikeVax COVID-19 for children ages 6 months to 11 years old. The Health Department also expects a very limited supply of the new Spikevax COVID-19 for those ages 19 and older with private insurance.
Anyone interested and unable to obtain the new Spikevax COVID-19 vaccine can complete this form so that the Health Department can accurately determine community needs.
