New COVID-19 Guidelines


In accordance with the updated CDC guidelines, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts has adopted recent additions to the list of medical conditions that likely put an individual at an increased risk of severe illness from COVID-19. This list now includes dementia or other neurological conditions. Individuals with one medical condition from the CDC list are eligible for a vaccine starting Monday, April 5, 2021. 

Individuals can learn more about the Commonwealth’s vaccination sites and pre-registration by visiting vaxfinder.mass.gov or mass.gov/covid-19-vaccine. Information from the Executive Office of Health and Human Services.

The Alzheimer’s Association, MA/NH Chapter supports the CDC’s updated guidance and the decision to include all individuals with dementia in vaccine prioritization.
