NEW BRITAIN, Conn. (WTNH)– The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)’s mobile COVID vaccination unit was in New Britain Saturday, April 10, and Sunday, April 11.
Griffin Health partnered with FEMA, The Connecticut Department of Public Health, The New Britain Health Department, New Britain Emergency Management, and the New Britain Mayor’s Office to make the COVID-19 vaccine more accessible to New Britain residents.
The mobile vaccination unit was at Veterans Memorial Stadium Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. specifically for New Britain residents.
The clinic was administering the Johnson & Johnson single-dose shot. Walk-ups were also welcome.
People we talked to say it was an easy experience.
Khrystyna Stefak who got vaccinated said, “I didn’t have to wait long, this was a walk-in appointment. I noticed it was being advertised on Mayor Stewart’s Instagram page… I stopped by, didn’t have to wait long. The staff was wonderful, the process was wonderful and the vaccine is very short, it’s a quick shot. You do feel a little bit of pain in your arm afterward but I feel fine.
