Free in-home vaccination offered
VERMONT- The Vermont Center for Independent Living has launched a statewide, in-home vaccine service for people of all ages.
Made possible by the US Administration for Community Living with a grant through USAging, in-home vaccinations are available for anyone who has difficulty getting to or using traditional vaccination locations.
This service is free of charge to anyone in Vermont, no insurance information will be collected, and in-home vaccinators will wear masks. Entire households including children, caregivers, and friends can be vaccinated at once. Newly updated COVID-19 and flu vaccines offer better protection against currently circulating strains, just in time for the upcoming holiday season when people are spending more time together indoors.
People wishing to learn more about this service as well as upcoming drive-through clinics can visit www.vcil.org/vaccines. Households ready to schedule an in-home vaccine can call (802) 830-4137, Monday through Friday from 9 am to 5 pm.
