DARTMOUTH — Director of Public Health Christopher Michaud and the Dartmouth COVID-19 Response Team would like to share with the community information regarding the beginning of Phase Two COVID-19 vaccinations and the conclusion of Phase One vaccinations.

Gov. Charlie Baker announced Monday updates to Phase Two of the COVID-19 vaccine distribution plan. Individuals age 75 and older are now the first priority group in Phase Two.
Vaccinations for individuals age 75 and older will begin on Monday, Feb. 1 statewide.
Dartmouth residents age 75 and older who have questions about access to the vaccine and do not have access to the internet are asked to call the Dartmouth Council on Aging at 508-999-4717. If you do not receive an answer, please leave a name and number for your call to be returned.

Details on clinic operations in Dartmouth will be posted to the town website by Wednesday, Feb. 3.
Phase One Eligible Groups
Gov. Baker announced last week that the remaining two groups listed in Phase One are immediately eligible to make a vaccination appointment. The remaining Phase One categories include home-based health care workers and health care workers providing non-COVID-19 facing care. This does not include those who do not come in contact with patients, however.
