vac booster

PARTY IN THE PARK
Vax & Booster Clinic

Age-appropriate Vaccine & Booster shots are available and offered for eligible Vermonters at our clinic.

   

COVID-19 vaccine and booster shots are free, safe and widely available in Vermont. 

   

Vaccines are effective against the worst outcomes of COVID-19 – but that protection drops over time. A booster dose gives your body the most protection possible against COVID-19. This is especially important as we continue to face new, more contagious variants of the virus.   

  

The sooner you get your vaccines and booster, the sooner you can be fully protected from COVID-19.
