Many Greater Danbury area COVID-19 vaccine clinics are ramping up as the state gets more supply from the federal government. That includes Brookfield's municipal clinic. Doses are now being administered at St Joseph Catholic Academy, and there's a change in policy.
Previously there were no walk-ins allowed for end of day doses because it was a rare occasion. But officials say they expect to have between 5 and 20 doses available to administer to people who show up at the end of the clinic day. People without appointments can arrive at 5pm on weekdays and noon on Saturdays to see if there are extra doses.
About 100 volunteers will staff the clinic, which has varying hours. This week the site will be open for appointments Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, but next week it's Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Eventually, the clinic could vaccinate 15-hundred people a week. By the end of this week though, the town will be able to give 300 Moderna shots to people per day.
