The towns of Bethel and Redding are combining resources to establish a local COVID-19 vaccine clinic, which is expected to open by the first week of February. Bethel is accepting advanced registrations now for eligible residents. People age 75 and older will be placed on a waiting list and contacted to schedule an appointment when vaccines become available. Supplies are very limited and First Selectman Matt Knickerbocker says they don't know exactly when appointments will be scheduled. Residents can register by telephone through the Bethel Vaccine Infoline at 203-794-8523. The line is staffed from 8am to 4pm Monday through Thursday, and 8am to Noon on Friday. Bethel Senior Center staff is also ready to help seniors with the form.
