Hartford HealthCare launches mobile vaccination clinic

Coronavirus

HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH)– Hartford HealthCare is launching a mobile vaccination clinic Friday.

The goal of the mobile clinic is to reach the community’s most vulnerable populations who are unable to leave home to get a COVID vaccination.

Hartford Healthcare rolled out the mobile clinic at Open Hearth Shelter in Hartford. 136 vaccines were administered at the shelter. 

Right now, 100 men experiencing homelessness are living at the shelter. 

“This is a something that millions are trying to get, and we’re getting it first. And it’s not something that is being done to us, it’s something that is getting done for us,” said Marilyn Rosetti with Open Hearth Shelter. 

President and CEO Jeffrey Flaks says, “We’re going to bringing our experts our leaders within Hartford healthcare into the community so they can build trust so they can create confidence and so we can deliver this vaccine to all of the populations, again no community left behind.”

Hartford HealthCare also plans to do much more than just mobile vaccination clinics. They also plan to have pop-up clinics and drive-thrus to the communities most in need.
