Appointments for COVID vaccine no longer needed at over 50 vaccination sites statewide

Coronavirus

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — Appointments for COVID-19 vaccinations are no longer needed at more than 50 vaccine clinics across the state starting Tuesday, April 27.

That includes the Connecticut Department of Public Health, Griffin Health vaccine vans, the Community Health Center locations, and the FEMA mobile vaccination unit.

For the most up-to-date list of walk-up clinics, visit ct.gov/covidvaccine/walkup.

In addition, many vaccine providers are offering evening and weekend hours.

The governor saying its all about access and equity.

“More sites are accepting walk-ups,” Governor Ned Lamont said Monday. “We’re going to have 50 locations in 26 cities and towns across the state where you can just walk up and get yourself a vaccination.”

This new process makes getting the COVID vaccine virtually hassle-free, which was a big criticism in recent months. Many say that the process to get registered and get an appointment was difficult.

State COO Josh Geballe added, “It’s never been easier to get vaccinated than right now. There’s walkup appointments around the state, same-day, next-day appointments, so really encourage everyone to go out there and get their vaccine…There will be a new normal, things won’t always be the same but it will be much different than the bleak times we were living in over this last year.”

On Tuesday, Yale New Haven Health announced that they will also offer walk-ins at some of their COVID vaccination sites through at least May 2.

The CEO of Community Health Center told us the time is now to ensure everyone gets a shot to return to some sense of normalcy.

CEO Mark Masselli said, “As one of the many health centers in the state, we fundamentally believe that health care is a right and not a privilege and it has been denied to so many people within our communities of color, within our economically disadvantaged populations, and we need to turn that around.”
