Get Vaccinated and Boosted
The most effective way to protect yourself, family and community is to get a Covid vaccine. We recommend either the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine series (2 shots, 3-4 weeks apart). Booster vaccines are given approximately 6 months after the second shot.
Having Symptoms of COVID?
If you have symptoms of COVID-19 (cough, fever, loss of smell/taste, muscle aches, runny nose, shortness of breath, and sore throat) or have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, contact our office (or your primary care doctor) to get tested. You can connect with your primary care provider via Patient Gateway
You should get tested if you have symptoms of COVID-19 or have been in close contact with someone with COVID-19. Testing helps protect your family, friends, and community. Call our office (978-354-4611) or the Mass General Brigham COVID-19 Nurse Hotline (617-724-7000, Monday–Friday 8:00 a.m.–4:30 p.m.). There are also free community testing sites available in Massachusetts and New Hampshire.
All patients and staff in our office must wear masks.
