Covid cases in Wareham were down to 18 last week per the state, and now, covid vaccines are now available for everyone ages 6 months and up, as the federal government has approved both Pfizer and Moderna’s pediatric vaccines. 

In recent weeks, weekly case counts have hovered around 40.  Overall, 66% of Wareham residents have received at least one dose of a covid vaccine, while 60% are fully vaccinated.

The nearest state-sponsored vaccination site is in Barnstable, per the state’s vaccine finder website, That site is offering vaccines to kids between 6 months and 11 years old. 

As it has for older children, Southcoast Health will offer vaccination clinics specifically for newly-eligible young children. The organization is currently planning those clinics, which will likely begin in July. For updates, see
