VDH COVID-19 Update: 33 new cases, no deaths, many walk-in clinics

Mon, 05/10/2021 - 5:39pm -- tim

Vermont Business Magazine The Vermont Department of Health is reporting today 33 new cases of COVID-19 after only six on Sunday. Deaths are still holding at 249 statewide. All Vermont residents age 16 and older are eligible to be vaccinated! College students and some residents of another state are now eligible for vaccines. Whether a Vermont resident or qualified non-resident, there are numerous opportunities to sign up for a vaccine or simply go to a walk-in clinic.

Here is the list of upcoming walk-in COVID-19 vaccination clinics.

Vaccines are available without an appointment while the supplies last. The number of spots are an estimate. The best way to guarantee your vaccine is to make an appointment. Fo more information and to register for a non-walk-in appointment, click HERE.

Walk-in vaccine opportunities now available

Looking to walk in to a vaccine clinic without an appointment? You can! Check out the latest opportunities on our website: healthvermont.gov/MyVaccine and follow our social media feeds @healthvermont to stay up to date.

Remember that a clinic’s vaccine supply for walk-ins is limited, so the best way to guarantee your vaccination is to make an appointment through our website.

Parents and caregivers can prepare now to get their 12- to 15-year-olds vaccinated

With the FDA expected as early as this week to approve use of the Pfizer vaccine for 12 to 15-year-olds, Vermont parents and caregivers can get ready now to make appointments for their children.

The CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices is meeting Wednesday to consider approval and make its recommendations for this age. If approved, we will be ready to open vaccination to this age group quickly.

If you have a child in this group, start planning ahead by creating an account on our website. Or, if you already have an account of your own, you can add your child as a dependent. Then you’ll be ready to make their appointment when registration opens.

You or your child may also already have an account from having been tested for COVID-19 through a Health Department site, so now is a good time to check.

COVID-19 vaccines prevent most people from getting seriously ill from COVID-19. However, a very small number of fully vaccinated people will still get infected with the virus. This is called “vaccine breakthrough,” and it happens with any vaccine, including measles, mumps, flu and others.

There were 161 vaccine breakthrough cases among Vermonters. These cases represent a small portion, about 0.06%, of the fully vaccinated population.

Whether you traveled or have symptoms, COVID-19 testing is available

Remember, if you are unvaccinated (including children) and traveled outside the state, you must have a COVID-19 test within 3 days of returning to Vermont. For more details, visit our website.

And if you have any symptom, no matter how mild, such as a headache, cough, fatigue or a runny nose, it’s best to get tested. It’s also important to avoid going to work, school or other places until you receive a negative result. COVID-19 is a highly transmissible virus, and this is how we can each protect our loved ones and our communities.

If you have symptoms, talk to your health care provider. They can refer you for testing.

Even if you don’t have symptoms, you can still have COVID-19 and not feel sick. If you don’t have symptoms and want to get tested, there are many test sites now available around the state. It’s free and easy!
