COVID-19 Vaccine Guidance

As per the Board of Health, any patient visiting the Community Health Center must wear a mask regardless of vaccination status.

Everyone age 18+ who lives, works, or studies in Massachusetts and who received Pfizer or Moderna at least 6 months ago or Johnson & Johnson at least 2 months ago are eligible to receive any booster.

People ages 5-17 can get the Pfizer vaccine. People age 18 or older can get any vaccine.

Community Health Center is not currently offering the Pfizer vaccine but if patients need assistance locating a pharmacy that is offering it, we will be happy to help. 

To find a location to receive a vaccine or booster near you, please visit www.vaxfinder.mass.gov. You can also call the Barnstable County COVID-19 Help Line at (774) 330-3001 for more information.

Appointments for the Moderna vaccine are available to CHC patients 18 and over at our Mashpee, Bourne, and Centerville offices. Vaccination clinics in Mashpee are on Mondays from 10am-3pm, Bourne on Fridays from 9am-2pm, and Centerville from Wednesdays from 12pm-5pm. Community Health Center encourages patients to use MyChart, from there you can self-schedule a vaccine appointment. If you have questions regarding the vaccine clinics or would like to schedule over the phone please call CHC, please call (508) 477-7090, then dial 0.

COVID-19 Testing Guidelines

If you have had close contact (within 6 feet for 15 minutes or longer) with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, you should be tested 4 days after exposure to reduce the chance of a false negative test. Per CDC guidelines, you should self-isolate for 10 days after the exposure, even if you test negative for COVID-19. Community Health Center offers COVID-19 testing for symptomatic and asymptomatic registered patients, and for unregistered asymptomatic patients. If you are having difficulty breathing or tightness in your chest, please call 911 or go to your nearest emergency room.

With the spread of the highly contagious delta variant, COVID-19 cases have increased in our community. If you experience fever, cough or congestion, please call us at (508) 477-7090 to schedule a telemedicine visit and COVID-19 test.
