The FEMA mobile COVID-19 vaccination van will be in Danbury today from noon to 6pm. The mobile unit is stocked with Pfizer shots and will be at the train station on Patriot Drive.
Tomorrow FEMA will be outside PriceRite on Main Street, Thursday at Danbury Sports Dome and Friday at the Danbury Ice Arena.
State Treasurer Shawn Wooden will visit the site this afternoon to thank FEMA, the Connecticut National Guard, the Danbury delegation, city leaders and healthcare partners for working to ensure members of high-risk communities, including communities of color get vaccinated. The FEMA Mobile Vaccination Unit has been deployed to Connecticut to target communities based on the social vulnerability index.
Wooden, who is Black, says the virus has had a disproportionate and devastating effect on communities of color, and recent data illustrates how Connecticut is still not hitting its equity allocation goals. Wooden will be joined by State Representative Raghib Allie-Brennan and the Region 5 Coordinator for state Division of Emergency Management and Homeland Security.
