MAKE SURE YOUR BROWSER IS COMPATIBLE:
DO NOT use Microsoft Explorer. It is not compatible with the MA scheduling software (PrepMOD). Chrome works well and Firefox may also be fine.
KNOW IN ADVANCE WHEN APPOINTMENTS WILL BECOME AVAILABLE:
Regularly check www.getvaccinatedberkshires.org where the date/time of new appointments are typically posted 6-12 hours in advance for the three large clinics in Berkshire County (North Adams, Pittsfield and Great Barrington). These clinics usually post appointments once a week, but some post more frequently.
SEARCH FOR ALL CLINICS IN OUR AREA:
Go to https://vaxfinder.mass.gov/ and search by zip code to view all clinic locations near you and real-time updates on when there are appointments available. This includes the three large clinics as well as others at pharmacies and other locations nearby including the Eastfield Mall. From this site you can get the direct link for each clinic.
BE READY FOR LARGE CLINICS BEFORE THE APPOINTMENTS DROP:
For the large clinics, open the link for the specific clinic you want to be in well before the appointments appear so that you can clear the waiting room before the appointments become available. The link to the Pittsfield Berkshire Community College Paterson Field House is here. Refresh around the time you know appointments will be made available for that site.
GET NOTIFIED ON TWITTER:
For those on Twitter, follow @vaccinetime and follow direction to get push notifications whenever appointments become available state-wide
