GOVERNOR PHIL SCOTT ANNOUNCES FIRST WAVE OF SCHOOL-BASED VACCINATION CLINICS AHEAD OF THE SCHOOL YEAR

 

Montpelier, Vt. - Governor Phil Scott today announced a series of new walk-in vaccination clinics that will be open at schools across Vermont next week. You can either walk-in, or you can also visit healthvermont.gov/MyVaccine to guarantee your spot by making an appointment online or by phone.

“As the school year approaches, we want as many eligible Vermont students as possible to get vaccinated,” said Governor Scott. “That’s why we’re setting up more school-based vaccine clinics for students and their families. These clinics are open, not only to our students, but to anyone who needs to get their shot.”

The best way to keep your child healthy – and to ensure a smooth return to full, in person learning – is to make sure they are vaccinated. The vaccines are safe and highly effective, including against the Delta variant. With school just a few weeks away, now is the time to start the vaccination process.

School-based vaccination clinics will be available throughout the state into the fall. The schedule for the clinics available next week is outlined below. The hours for these clinics can be found at the Department of Health’s website: healthvermont.gov/MyVaccine. Please check back for details as more clinics are added.
