STATE ANNOUNCES DOZENS OF NEW WEEKEND WALK-IN VACCINATION CLINICS

Montpelier, Vt. – Governor Phil Scott today announced dozens of new walk-in clinics as the State works to make the COVID-19 vaccine easily accessible throughout Vermont.

Governor Scott previously announced that when 80% of Vermont’s eligible population (those age 12 and older) have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, the state will enter Step 4 of theVermont Forward plan and remove remaining restrictions. As of Thursday, it was at 78.6% of eligible Vermonters, needing 7,878 more people to reach the goal.

“Vermonters have stepped up throughout this pandemic and we are very close to our vaccination goal,” said Governor Scott. “As we’re seeing a slow-down in the number of people being vaccinated, we need those who have not yet gotten their shot to find a clinic today. It has never been easier, with hundreds of clinics across the state. Vaccines are free, safe and very effective – now is the time.”

Vermont has led the nation in its vaccination efforts, with a higher percentage of its population having received at least one dose than any other state in the country. To ensure as many Vermonters as possible can receive the COVID-19 vaccine, the state continues to offer walk-in and by-appointment clinics statewide through state clinics, hospitals, primary care providers, pharmacies, schools, businesses and public spaces with the support of EMS crews, the Vermont National Guard and many local partners. 

Currently scheduled pop-up, walk-in events for Friday, June 4 – Monday, June 7 are listed below. In addition to these pop-up events, most pharmacies around the state are offering walk-in vaccinations. Ask your local pharmacist today or simply walk into a CVS, Hannaford Food and Drug, Walmart, Walgreens, Price Chopper/Market 32, Rite Aid, Shaws Supermarket, or Costco.
