Numerous Weekend Walk-in Vaccination Clinics Can Help Push Vermont To Its 80% Vaccination Goal
Montpelier, VT (STL.News) Governor Phil Scott announced new walk-in clinics available across Vermont throughout the weekend, including at numerous State parks as part of the annual Vermont Days Weekend.
As of Thursday, 79.6% of eligible (12+) Vermonters have received at least one dose of the COVID-19, which means 2,093 more people are needed to reach Governor Scott’s goal to vaccinate 80% of the eligible population. The Governor has said he will lift the remaining COVID-19 restrictions when it is reached.
“We are so close to our goal, but we need those Vermonters who have put off their shots to help put us over the top. Now is the time, and the good news is it has never been easier,” said Governor Scott.
Currently scheduled pop-up, walk-in events for Friday, June 11 – Monday, June 14 are listed below. In addition to these pop-up events, most pharmacies around Vermont are offering walk-in vaccinations. Ask your local pharmacist today or simply walk into a CVS, Hannaford Food and Drug, Walmart, Walgreens, Price Chopper/Market 32, Rite Aid, Shaws Supermarket, or Costco.
“Every person we get vaccinated not only puts us closer to our 80% goal but also puts us in a better position for the Fall when we know cases may rise. The more people vaccinated means even if that occurs, we can continue to see minimal hospitalizations and deaths, keep variants at bay and keep the pandemic phase of COVID in the rearview mirror.”
