VDH COVID-19 Update: Cases down, vaccinations urged, walk-ins proliferate

Fri, 06/11/2021 - 3:51am -- tim

Vermont Business Magazine The Vermont Department of Health is reporting only 12 new cases of COVID-19 in the state and no deaths. However, it is also reporting only 292 people were vaccinated on Wednesday. Still Vermont needs only 2,093 more eligible people to get vaccinated for Governor Scott to lift all COVID restrictions. So, the state will reopen June 13 if about 500 Vermonters are vaccinated daily; June 12 if about 650 Vermonters are vaccinated daily; and June 11 if about 1,000 Vermonters are vaccinated daily. 

New walk-in clinics available across Vermont throughout the weekend, including at numerous State parks as part of the annual Vermont Days Weekend. SEE LIST BELOW.

Getting vaccinated is free and easy, with no appointment needed. Visit healthvermont.gov/MyVaccine to find a clinic near you, with some offering special incentives!

New Health Department videos showcase why Vermonters ultimately got vaccinated

The Health Department has launched a new ad campaign featuring real Vermonters who came to walk-in clinics and agreed to share their reasons for getting vaccinated.

Check them out here!

The videos -- which are now airing on TV and radio, as well as on YouTube and other streaming venues -- are unique in that, at first, the people featured weren’t “all in” on getting vaccinated. They still had questions or wanted to see how other people they knew did. 

These Vermonters describe their concerns and how or why they overcame them, some by doing their research into the vaccines, and others deciding to move forward in order to protect their loved ones.

Watch and share these stories about why these fellow Vermonters ultimately chose to get vaccinated. 

You can also find inspiring videos featuring people from around the state talking about what they look forward to once they get vaccinated, and several with Dr. Levine discussing vaccine safety and effectiveness. Visit our YouTube channel at youtube.com/user/HealthVermont for these and many other important public health topics.

Getting vaccinated is free and easy, with no appointment needed. Visit healthvermont.gov/MyVaccine to find a clinic near you, with some offering special incentives! 

As of Thursday, 79.6% of eligible (12+) Vermonters have received at least one dose of the COVID-19, which means 2,093 more people are needed to reach Governor Scott’s goal to vaccinate 80% of the eligible population. Gov. Phil Scott has said he will lift the remaining COVID-19 restrictions when it is reached.

“We are so close to our goal, but we need those Vermonters who have put off their shots to help put us over the top. Now is the time, and the good news is it has never been easier,” said Governor Scott, in a press release Thursday.

In addition to events at parks, shopping centers, festivals, and town centers, most pharmacies around Vermont are offering walk-in vaccinations. Ask your local pharmacist today or simply walk into a CVS, Hannaford Food and Drug, Walmart, Walgreens, Price Chopper/Market 32, Rite Aid, Shaw’s Supermarket, or Costco.

“Every person we get vaccinated not only puts us closer to our 80% goal but also puts us in a better position for the Fall when we know cases may rise,” Gov. Scott said. “The more people vaccinated means even if that occurs, we can continue to see minimal hospitalizations and deaths, keep variants at bay and keep the pandemic phase of COVID in the rearview mirror.”
