“The more people we can vaccinate, or choose to get vaccination, help all of the community and all of the residents of Connecticut, said Steve Huleatt, Director of Health at the West Hartford-Bloomfield Health District.

Health officials recommend that you wash your hands frequently, and avoid sharing cups and utensils with people. If you missed a clinic on Saturday, you can make an appointment to get one through their office in Bloomfield.Related: Don’t get sidelined by the flu at your Super Bowl party
