Protect yourself from COVID-19 this summer and beyond

Montpelier, Vt. - Governor Phil Scott today announced new walk-in clinics available across Vermont throughout the holiday weekend, including at the Johnson Skate Park, Barton Fairground, Stowe Independence Day celebration, and more.

“This Independence Day, after 16 long and difficult months dealing with a global pandemic, we have even more to celebrate than usual. And the freedom we’ll have to safely celebrate this weekend is thanks to effective vaccines and so many Vermonters who stepped up to protect themselves and their neighbors,” said Governor Scott. “Even with our state’s high vaccination rate, we still need as many Vermonters as possible to protect themselves from COVID-19 by getting vaccinated.”

More than 452,000 Vermonters have already received at least one dose of vaccine, 82.1% of the eligible population.

“If you’re not yet vaccinated, I encourage you to join the vast majority of your fellow Vermonters and find a clinic near you. Every Vermonter vaccinated puts us in a better position to continue to build on the progress we’ve made into the fall and winter,” Governor Scott said. “It’s free, quick and easy, and there is no better time than now.”
