Community Health Center, Inc. offers its deepest apologies to trans men, the entire trans community and others we offended during our initial distribution of the Monkeypox vaccine. In an effort to quickly and efficiently get the vaccine to recommended populations, we made an error in determining eligibility and caused a delay in the ability of some transmen to receive the vaccine. We sincerely regret this serious oversight in screening language. CHC has a long history of commitment to caring for transgender populations, and is grateful to those who brought the error to our attention. The voice of the patient is very important to our work and if you have any recommendations or concerns please share them with us. Again, our apologies as we work hard to get this vital vaccine out.
CHC is offering Monkeypox vaccinations at six locations designated by the state of Connecticut: Clinton, Danbury, Enfield, Middletown, New London and Stamford. For more information about who is eligible and to schedule an appointment, please call 860-347-6971.
