Clinics Continue as State Issues Tuesday-Thursday Pop-Up Schedule

Vermont Business Magazine Governor Phil Scott today announced new walk-in clinics as the state pushes to make the COVID-19 vaccine easily accessible throughout Vermont.

As of Monday, 79.2% of eligible (12+) Vermonters have received at least one dose of the COVID-19, which means 4,197 more people are needed to reach Governor Scott’s goal to vaccinate 80% of the eligible population. The Governor has said he will lift the remaining COVID-19 restrictions when it is reached.

If 1,000 Vermonters a day got their shot, the state would reach 80 percent by June 10.

As of today, the Vermont Department of Health is reporting only four new cases of COVID-19 (24,282 Total), one person hospitalized (zero in ICU) and no new deaths, which are holding at 256.

“We made great progress over the weekend through pharmacy and pop-up vaccinations sites across the state,” said Governor Phil Scott. “I appreciate those Vermonters who took the time to get their shots and all the staff, EMS crews and healthcare providers who make these clinics possible. If you are still waiting to get your shot, now is the time, and there are many healthcare providers and Health Department resources that can help get any questions you have answered.”

There're free walk-in opportunities across the state. No appointment needed. Find yours @ http://healthvermont.gov/myvaccine #OurShotVT Vermonters with questions about the vaccine, can visit healthvermont.gov/myvaccine for more information.
