The Danbury Department of Public Health is closing up the municipal COVID-19 vaccination clinic at Rogers Park Middle School. Demand for shots has fallen so tomorrow's administration from 1pm to 7pm will be the final day.
Danbury plans to use a million dollar grant to hold more mobile clinics in various neighborhoods. The Connecticut Institute for Communities is working with the City on this effort, hiring four outreach workers to connect with unvaccinated populations.
According to the latest state data, 54.6 percent of Danbury residents have received at least one dose of the vaccine, and 42.4 percent are fully vaccinated. That's behind most of the region. 55 percent of Bethel, New Fairfield and Sherman residents are partially vaccinated while at least 60 percent of residents in New Milford, Bridgewater, Brookfield, Newtown, Redding, Ridgefield, Southbury, Roxbury and Washington have at least one dose.
For now, the mass vaccination site at the Danbury Fair mall remains open.
