COVID-19 Vaccination

Pines Health Services and Cary Medical Center are working together to deliver COVID-19 vaccines to our communities in accordance with CDC guidelines.

Here are some frequently asked questions about the COVID-19 vaccination.

Here are the current criteria for vaccination as of May 11, 2021. To qualify for a vaccine, you must be a 12* years of age or older.

* PLEASE NOTE: Although CDC guidelines allow for vaccination of people age 12 and over beginning on May 13, only the Pfizer vaccine has been approved for those ages 12 to 17. We will conduct age-specific clinics for doses of the Pfizer vaccine for ages 12 to 17.

COVID-19 vaccines are currently being offered by Cary Medical Center and Pines Health Services through coordinated efforts with specific community organizations like our schools and city officials. We will be conducting some community-based vaccine clinics throughout the summer. Future dates and locations are still to be determined and will be announced as they become available.

The Department of Health and Human Services is offering a free option for Maine people who need a ride to and from a COVID-19 vaccination appointment. Call 1-855-608-5172 to reserve a ride at least 48 hours in advance of your appointment.
