MaineHealth Care at Home, which serves people in Lincoln, Knox and Waldo counties, has begun distributing COVID-19 vaccines to eligible homebound patients receiving services with the agency.

Currently, the COVID-19 vaccine from MaineHealth Care at Home is available to patients receiving home health services from the agency who are eligible for vaccination under state and federal CDC guidelines. Home vaccinations will be provided based on need to existing patients who are clinically unable, for health or mobility reasons, to get to a public vaccination site. MaineHealth Care at Home is not authorized to admit patients for the sole purpose of vaccination and is not permitted to offer vaccinations to family members and others who do not qualify for home health services. The agency will communicate directly with its patients regarding the vaccination program and is not taking requests for vaccinations outside of its existing patient population.
