Select Stop & Shop pharmacy locations in Massachusetts have begun to administer the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. Per the state’s distribution plan, current eligible individuals must live, work or attend school in Massachusetts and includes healthcare workers as well as non-hospital-based healthcare personnel and residents of other long-term care settings covered under the rollout of Phase 1. Effective Monday, Feb. 1, select Stop & Shop locations will begin accepting online vaccination appointments for those 75 and older.

Stop & Shop is working in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Department of Health.

The Massachusetts Department of Health will determine individual eligibility, and eligible customers will be able to schedule their Moderna vaccination via Stop & Shop’s Online Vaccine Scheduling System. Stop & Shop is only authorized to immunize individuals who live, work or attend school in Massachusetts under the guidelines of Massachusetts Phase 1 through Jan. 31, which is limited to direct and COVID-facing healthcare workers, long-term care facility staff and residents, first responders, congregate care setting workers, home-based healthcare workers and healthcare workers doing non-COVID facing care. Effective Feb. 1, those living, employed or studying in Massachusetts who are 75 and older will be eligible for vaccination at participating Stop & Shop pharmacies. Customers are urged to visit stopandshop.com/covid-vaccine to schedule an appointment and view the most recent COVID-19 updates. Customers should not visit or call Stop & Shop stores for vaccine updates or appointments as all pertinent information and appointment requests will be provided online

“Stop & Shop is proud to continue to do its part in the fight against COVID-19,” said Katie Thornell, director of pharmacy operations at Stop & Shop. “Being an early provider of the vaccine demonstrates our commitment to being a trusted health resource within our local communities. We are excited to begin helping members of the community protect themselves against COVID-19, while continuing to provide a safe shopping experience for your family’s everyday grocery and pharmacy needs.”

In December, Stop & Shop announced a partnership with the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) to be among the first COVID-19 vaccine providers, making the Moderna shot available to its customers across the Northeast. The coronavirus vaccine will be administered to Stop & Shop customers who are eligible for Phase 1 and those over 75 at no out-of-pocket cost.

Stop & Shop and its pharmacists are eager to do their part to assist the community by providing the COVID-19 vaccine in a safe and sanitized environment. During immunization, customers will be required to wear PPE and pharmacists will be equipped with masks, gloves and face shields. The pharmacy team utilizes the same thorough disinfection protocols for all patients, disinfecting and sanitizing between each patient to ensure the health and safety for all patients.

Flu, pneumonia, shingles and other immunizations are currently available to customers at all Stop & Shop Pharmacy locations. To find your nearest Stop & Shop pharmacy, visit stopandshop.com/pharmacy.
