Danbury helps seniors with booking appointments, transportation to COVID-19 vaccine clinic

Danbury's 14 day average of COVID-19 cases stands at 47-point-2 per 100,000 residents.  The positivity rate over the past 14 days is 6.6 percent.  The state is currently vaccinating people in group 1a and people over age 75.  Acting Health Department Director Kara Prunty says the City is holding clinics every day, and have vaccinated just shy of 2,400 people as of Tuesday.  The Health Department is working with community partners to help seniors book appointments and on transportation needs.  Any Danbury senior needing assistance are encouraged to call the health department or the state help line, as Danbury is part of the state scheduling system.  Mayor Joe Cavo says various City departments received over 600 calls from seniors in the first couple of days, trying to be first in line for the shot, but it took the state 3 or 4 days to get the appointment system up and running.  He notes that staff took down everyone's information to get them ready for the VAMS system and called it a wild few days.
