Over the course of the past week there have been 30 new, confirmed cases of COVID-19 in New Fairfield. The infection rate is currently 65 cases per 100,000 people.
New Fairfield’s vaccination clinic is expected to be open on February 2, contingent on vaccine availability. Clinic appointments will become available on VAMS next week. At this time only those individuals over the age of 75 are eligible for COVID vaccination.
Vaccine is in short supply, and the New Fairfield Health Director has been informed that the State’s weekly allocation of 46,000 doses from the federal government will be less than expected for the foreseeable future.
The town is still enrolling licensed medical professionals to volunteer in upcoming clinics. Anyone eligible is asked to email firstname.lastname@example.org with name, credentials and availability.
