The COVID-19 Vaccination Van is coming back to New Fairfield and Sherman for the first three months of the year. The first six Wednesdays, beginning on the 12th, are at one the local schools in the late afternoon to encourage vaccinations of school-age children, the demographic with the lowest vaccination rates in New Fairfield and Sherman.
The clinics at the schools are set up to accommodate children over 5 and will also have separate stations for adults. Children between 5 and 11 years old can only be vaccinated at a clinic this month and early next.
New Fairfield will continue the normal schedule of Saturday vaccinations at the High School for the general population and will pick up again at St. Edwards on Wednesdays after the school clinics are completed. The Vaccination Van clinics are walk-in, no appointment necessary, and provide all three vaccines.
