HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH)— The City of Hartford hosted its fourth pop-up COVID-19 vaccine clinic at the Dunkin’ Donuts Park Saturday.
The clinic is supported by the state’s vaccine allocation and conducted by the City of Harford’s Health and Human Services Department.
Nurses from the City’s Health Department, States Medical Reserve Corps, and students from the University of Saint Joseph and UConn are conducting vaccinations.
Hartford Mayor Luke Bronin, U.S. Senator Chris Murphy, and city officials were in attendance Saturday.
“We’ve worked hard in Hartford to build a network for vaccinations that makes it easy and accessible for our community to get vaccinated — just like we did on testing. And I’m proud to say that we now have half a dozen permanent or semi-permanent vaccination sites in our city,” Mayor Bronin said.
Senator Murphy added, “Under President Biden, we are moving vaccines to the states faster than ever before — we are vaccinating almost 50% more people today than we were a month ago.”
City residents 55 and older can fill out the easy, bilingual vaccine interest form. The City’s Health Department will then call residents to schedule an appointment at an upcoming vaccine clinic.
