Governor Lamont Announces Certain COVID-19 Vaccination Clinics Will No Longer Require Appointments Beginning April 27 P

Posted on April 26, 2021 (HARTFORD, CT) – Governor Ned Lamont today announced that beginning Tuesday, April 27, 2021, more than 50 providers of COVID-19 vaccines in Connecticut will no longer require an appointment prior to providing individuals with vaccinations. Connecticut residents will be able walk-up to the clinic and receive a vaccination on-the-spot.

The no-appointment, walk-up clinics are part of a continuing series of efforts aimed at making it easier for Connecticut residents to receive COVID-19 vaccines. Those efforts have also included the introduction of the Connecticut Department of Public Health/Griffin Health vaccine vans and the FEMA mobile vaccination unit, all of which are deployed on a daily basis to cities and towns with traditionally underserved communities. In addition, many vaccine providers are offering evening and weekend hours in order to provide workers who cannot take time during the day to get the vaccine.

“Transitioning clinics across the state to a walk-up method that do not require an appointment in advance is part of our ongoing focus to make getting vaccinated as easy as possible,” Governor Lamont said. “If you have not yet received a vaccination, there is plenty of opportunity.”

“We want to make access to the vaccines as easy as possible so that people who haven’t yet received the vaccine can make the choice to join the more than one million Connecticut residents who have received at least one dose of the vaccine,” Connecticut Public Health Acting Commissioner Dr. Deidre Gifford said. “These vaccines are a powerful tool in our fight against the COVID-19 virus and our collective goal to return to a sense of normalcy, where we can gather safely with our loved ones and friends, go to a sporting event or concert, worship with our fellow community members without fear of infecting one another. These walk-up clinics are another means to help us reach this goal.”

COVID-19 vaccines are always free of charge to individuals. People are encouraged to bring some form of identification and their medical insurance, however neither are required and no one will be turned away if they do not have insurance or identification.
