    • You should never be asked for cash or payment at or after a clinic for a COVID vaccine, however, you will be asked for your health insurance card. 

  • Health insurance card (if you have health insurance) 

    • If you make an appointment, enter your own health insurance information from your insurance card 

    • If you plan to walk-in, bring your health insurance card with you for registration

    • If you don't have health insurance, no card needed! Vaccine is free.

How can I get my vaccine record?

  • Fastest: If you got any doses in Massachusetts you can find a digital record HERE at www.myvaxrecords.mass.gov
  • Call your primary care office; almost all primary care offices are connected to the Massachusetts Immunization Information System (MIIS)
  • Call the organization/clinic/business where you received your doses. 
    • If you received your vaccine at a clinic run by the Northampton Department of Health and Human Services call 413-587-1216 and leave a message for a Public Health Nurse with your name, date of birth, and address. Two of our nurses have access to MIIS and will do their best to get back to you as soon as possible with a phone call.

*On December 16, 2021 the CDC published a statement recommending Pfizer and Moderna (mRNA vaccines) over Janssen Johnson and Johnson vaccine.  While we do offer the J&J vaccine because it provides some benefit and is medically indicated for a few people, we will always recommend the CDC guidance.
