CT DPH Vaccine Van To Visit Town For Two Free Walk-Up Clinics
St Rose of Lima Church will host a pair of free walk-in COVID vaccination clinics next week.
Working with Griffin Health and Connecticut Department of Public Health (DPH), St Rose Parish Nurse Nancy Rhodes announces walk-in clinics have been arranged for Monday and Tuesday, June 7 and 8. The clinics will take place in the Holy Innocents Faith Formation Center, 38-B Church Hill Road, and will run from 4 to 8 pm each day.
Pfizer and J&J vaccines will be administered. The second dose of Pfizer will be administered July 6 and 7 at the same location, during the same four-hour windows.
All are invited to attend the clinic. Health insurance cards and photo IDs are requested, but not required. No one will be turned away for lack of either, and there is no charge for the vaccine.
Connecticut’s COVID-19 Vaccination Van will be parked right outside the hall where the clinic will be held.
The highly visible yellow vans, provided by the DPH and run by Griffin Health, can administer 100 to 125 shots per day in a six-hour window. The shots are available to all, without appointment.
The Department of Public Health points out that choosing to get vaccinated is an additional powerful tool in the fight against the COVID-19 virus.
The vaccine will protect those who receive it from becoming seriously ill from COVID-19. It will protect their family and friends from becoming seriously ill from COVID-19. The vaccine will allow recipients to once again gather safely with loved ones and neighbors, and also allow recipients to “get back to a sense of normalcy,” according to the state DPH.
The COVID-19 Vaccination Vans are part of the Connecticut’s effort to vaccinate as many residents as possible. More than half of the state’s population has received at lest one shot since vaccinations began in December.
