The Brookfield Health Department has seen the first downturn in COVID-19 caseloads in over three months. Rates of disease reached as high as 8.9 percent last month, three times the state average. Brookfield volunteers have provided well over 6,000 vaccinations at the Senior Center, and more recently at St. Joseph’s School. The department continues to offer vaccines both by appointment and end-of-the-day walk-ins. No serious complications have been reported by clinic staff.
