COVID-19 vaccine clinics for children located throughout Conn. to be held – NBC Connecticut

Efforts continue to get younger children vaccinated against COVID-19, and Hartford HealthCare is hosting special vaccine clinics across the state on Saturdays for children ages 5 to 11.

The Department of Health said more than 10,000 children ages 5 to 11 in Connecticut have already received their first dose and that number is growing.

Hartford HealthCare has six sites that parents can use to help their children roll up their sleeves during Saturday’s clinics.

The locations are at Hartford at Hartford Hospital, Norwich at the Hartford HealthCare East Region System Support Office, Wethersfield at the Hartford HealthCare Medical Group Office, Torrington at Charlotte Hungerford Hospital, New Britain at the Hospital of Central Connecticut and Bridgeport at St. Vincent’s Medical Centre.

Hartford HealthCare will host COVID-19 vaccination clinics across the state for children ages 5 to 11 on Saturday.

The health care system expects to vaccinate at least 2,200 children this weekend.

Doctors want families to sign up online through their MyChart account or by phone. All children must be accompanied by their parent or legal guardian.

The clinics are open until 4 pm. They said they take walk-in patients but prefer children to have an appointment.
