Important message to our patients: For now, we will only offer the Moderna and Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. The US government has paused use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine because six people (out of 7 million vaccinations) experienced a possible serious side effect. Scientists are now reviewing the cases to make sure it is safe. We will let you know what they decide. As always, if you have severe side effects after getting vaccinated, please contact your provider. #VaccinesSaveLives #StopCovid19

CHP does not provide Covid-19 vaccinations at our practice locations. We have partnered with Berkshire Health Systems and the area Boards of Health Association to form the Berkshire Vaccine Collaborative to distribute the vaccine across the County at multiple vaccination sites in the county. This effort is focused on systematic and equitable vaccination, following the guidelines set by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Please note: This collaborative vaccine registration tool does not include vaccination registration options at various pharmacy locations throughout the county.
For those who do not have Internet access, call the Council on Aging in Williamstown, Adams, North Adams, Dalton, Pittsfield, Lenox, Lee, Stockbridge, Great Barrington or Sheffield for assistance.
