Clinics for students are planned in conjunction with partners.

The West Hartford-Bloomfield Health District announced a schedule Friday of COVID-19 vaccination clinics planned for the month of November, where members of the community can receive initial shots, boosters, or third doses, depending on their age or eligibility.
Clinics for students ages 5-11, who are expected to become eligible to receive a pediatric dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine on Nov. 4 through Emergency Use Authorization (EUA), are being held in conjunction with partner organizations because the Health District doesn’t administer the Pfizer vaccine.
Families can schedule appointments for the UConn clinic, for children ages 5-11, after Nov. 4 by calling 860-679-5589.
Pre-registration for the Health District clinics “is not required, however, it is recommended through your VAMS account,” an email from the town states. Those receiving shots are asked to bring their vaccination card (if applicable), identification and insurance card.
Health Director Aimee Krauss has created a graphic which clarifies who is eligible for boosters shots or additional doses of the various types of COVID-19 vaccines, and when they are eligible. More detail can be found here.
The Health District plans to add new dates and locations for vaccination clinics throughout the fall and winter, and will be posted on the Town of West Hartford website, westhartfordct.gov. More information can also be found by calling 860-561-7900.
