Mobile clinics offering the COVID-19 vaccine will set up shop in Hardwick later this month.
The mobile clinics will take place on Wednesday, Feb. 24, from 8 a.m. until 4:50 p.m. and on Friday, Feb. 26, from 8 a.m. until 2:10 p.m. at the Hardwick Fire Station.
Northern Counties Health Care and Northeastern Vermont Regional Hospital are teaming up to offer the vaccine clinics with the help of emergency personnel and town staff in Hardwick.
Vermonter’s age 75 and over are currently eligible to receive the vaccine, although there are some exceptions that allow younger individuals to receive it, and the age threshold could change in the coming weeks.
To register to receive the shot, visit healthvermont.gov/myvaccine (preferred) or call 855-722-7878.
After the initial shot, second doses of the COVID-19 vaccine will be administered in Hardwick at the fire station 28 days later, on March 24 and 26.
Mobile clinics will be set up across the Northeast Kingdom in the coming weeks and months as part of the effort to meet Gov. Phil Scott’s goal of having a vaccine clinic located within 30 minutes of every Vermonter.
COVID-19 testing is also available four days a week at the Hardwick Fire Station.
