COVID-19 Vaccination at MaineHealth

The state of Maine has announced a change to their COVID-19 vaccine eligibility plan. Beginning March 3, 2021, Maine residents aged 60 and above will be eligible for vaccination. We will continue to prioritize Maine residents 70 and older who have already pre-registered in our system, but will begin scheduling vaccination appointments for residents 60 and older. If you are over the age of 60 and have already pre-registered, no action is required. We have included you in the over 60 vaccine phase and your place in line within this group has been saved. Learn More.

Register for a vaccine appointment

Call 1-877-780-7545 from any phone to register for your vaccine appointment. If a friend or family member needs help with the process, you may call 1-877-780-7545 on their behalf and enter their information.

MaineHealth has opened COVID-19 vaccine clinics across the state and care team members are vaccinating as many people as possible, as quickly as possible. Vaccine supplies are still limited and we appreciate your patience as we work through the vaccine phases established by the state. At this time, we are only able to offer the COVID-19 vaccine to Maine residents. This does not include people who are living in the state temporarily. Proof of Maine residency will be required. This could be a Maine driver's license or state identification card, or a utility bill with your name and Maine address. Health care personnel, public safety and critical COVID-19 response personnel will be also be asked for an employer-issued ID badge, state-issued professional license or other proof of employment.
