Massachusetts residents seem to be having a bit of confusion about what documents are required to receive a coronavirus vaccine.

You won’t need medical records or a doctor’s note either. In fact, you can still get a shot even without insurance.

The only thing you really need is a form attesting to that fact that you qualify for the vaccine at the time of your appointment. Those are usually online to fill out when you sign up, and if not, they should have them at the vaccination center.

While they're not mandated, it’s probably a good idea to have some sort of ID and your health insurance card if you have them.
