Amusement Parks, Beaches, Chambers of Commerce
Key to Getting Connecticut Fully Vaccinated
Community Health Center, Inc. is launching its summer ABC Vaccine Initiative, bringing vaccines to people where they play and work in Connecticut. The ABC’s – Amusement Parks, Beaches, and Chambers of Commerce – will be a key focus of CHC vaccine outreach to the community, along with on-going mass vaccination clinics and daily mobile clinics bringing vaccines to houses of worship, farms, senior living facilities and shelters.
One of the first ABC clinics will take place Saturday, May 1 at Cove Island, 1125 Cove Rd., Stamford from 10am-4pm. The one-dose J&J vaccine will be offered on a walk-up, no-appointment basis. Anyone age 18 and over is eligible for the J&J vaccine (only the Pfizer vaccine is currently approved for 16-17 year olds).
“Bringing the vaccine to where people congregate for entertainment and work is going to help our state reach herd immunity and get our economy back on track,” said Mark Masselli, CHC Founder/CEO. “We will vaccinate you without an appointment at any of our sites across the state, and we hope in addition to remembering your sunscreen when you hit the beach, you’ll take a few minutes to get vaccinated.”
Community Health Center, Inc. has vaccination clinics open 7-days per week throughout Connecticut, and people age 16 and above are eligible to be vaccinated. Parental consent is required for those age 16-17. For a full list of locations and hours, as well as consent forms for minors, visit https://www.chc1.com/covid-19-vaccine/.
