The largest COVID-19 vaccine drive-through clinic in Connecticut will open on Monday morning.
Pratt & Whitney in East Hartford is being converted into a 10-lane Mass Vaccine Clinic.
The Pfizer vaccine will be administered there by the Community Health Center.
Vaccines will be available by appointing only those under Phase 1A and 1B. By Monday, people with 75 and more appointments will be able to receive vaccinations.
Those who are 75 years of age and older, who have an email address and the ability to take an appointment online can schedule through the online Vaccine Administration Management System (VAMS).
They can also call 877-918-2224 to make an appointment. State officials ask that only people 75 and up call, because they are expecting higher call volumes.
The drive-through clinic will be open from 18 to 22 January for the first week of operation. From next week, the clinic will be open seven days a week, by appointment only.
More information will be provided during the media briefing which will be on Monday at 10 am
