Barnstable County’s “Phase 1 Clean-Up Vaccine Clinic” is Now Full 

No appointments accepted for clinics scheduled on 1/26 and 1/28 

For Immediate Release 

January 23, 2021 – Barnstable, MA. Barnstable County Department of Health and Environment announced yesterday that eligible residents can now register for the “Phase 1 Clean-up” clinic to receive the COVID-19 vaccine on January 26 and January 28 from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM at the Orleans DPW; however, these clinics, which had a total of 480 doses of vaccine available, are now full and no further appointments are being accepted for these dates.

Barnstable County Department of Health and Environment is expecting more vaccine to arrive beginning in February.

Barnstable County Public Health Nurse Deirdre Arvidson said, “The two clinics scheduled on January 26 and 28 in Orleans filled up very quickly, but we are expecting another shipment of vaccine the first week of February and we will be opening up registration for more Phase 1 eligible residents as we have the vaccine in hand.”

Select pharmacies on Cape Cod received vaccine this week and are also dispensing it to current eligible Phase Groups. Residents can check with CVS and Walgreens in Hyannis, Mashpee, and South Yarmouth. Visit the state’s webpage at to see a map that shows COVID-19 vaccine locations available in Massachusetts for currently eligible recipients.

As a reminder, 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.
