Caregivers and BIPOC can schedule vaccinations
Parents or primary caregivers who are caring for children with certain high-risk conditions
can now make appointments for vaccination.
Vermonters who identify as Black, Indigenous and people of
color age 16 years of age and older — as well as their family members — can make an
appointment for vaccination.
Next age band opens today
Beginning this morning (March 29), Vermonters age 50 and older are eligible to schedule appointments for their first COVID vaccinations.
Be prepared – set up your account
Visit the Vermont Department of Health website to set up your account and be ready to go when your age group opens for appointments.
As Health Commissioner Dr Levine noted last week, “We are still in a really delicate time, where the virus, and its variants, can and will take advantage of us if we let our guard down. It has the potential to set us back in our efforts, hampering us in the race.”
Dr Levine reminded us that we can still keep this virus at bay by wearing our masks, keeping our distance, and avoiding crowds. Keep gatherings small, try to avoid travel that’s not essential, and get tested.
