New Milford has received 400 more doses of Johnson and Johnson COVID-19 vaccine than expected from the state.  A special clinic is being planned for Saturday for essential and front-line workers over the age of 18.  It will be held at the Pettibone Community Center after the regularly scheduled 2nd dose clinic.  Health Director Lisa Morrissey told the Newstimes that based on demand, the special clinics will continue April 10th.  Appointments for next week will be loaded to the town’s online portal on Friday.  Morrissey also says an anonymous donor gifted New Milford with a Pfizer-capable freezer, and the state gave the town a smaller portable unit, anticipating warm weather vaccine administration.  The town planned to buy an ultra-cold freezer, but it's on backorder and there's no planned delivery date.
