Commonwealth’s Self Attestation Form
All residents must demonstrate their eligibility to receive the vaccine. Eligibility can be established by self-attestation. Residents should bring the COVID-19 Massachusetts Vaccination Attestation Form with them to the clinic. The form is accessible at COVID-19 Massachusetts Vaccination Attestation Form.
In addition to the form, residents should bring one of the following forms of identification to your appointment:
- An employer-issued ID card that includes your name and title; or
- Government-issued identification or license; or
- Recent paystub.
As a reminder, The Barnstable County Department of Health and Environment launched a regionwide COVID-19 helpline on January 19 to respond to all COVID-19-related questions at 1-774-330-3001. Volunteers answering calls cannot provide individual clinical advice or a diagnosis through the helpline, but they are trained to answer questions related to COVID-19, such as how to get a COVID-19 test or how to help someone navigate the three-phased approach to vaccination.
Barnstable County wants to ensure residents that a coordinated response is taking place in our region. We remain committed to encouraging all citizens to wear a mask, maintain a physical distance of at least 6 feet, and wash hands for at least 20 seconds.
