MONTPELIER, Vt. – Governor Phil Scott announced a series of vaccination clinics that will be open at schools across the state this week for anyone ages 12 or older.

Governor Scott and state health officials are encouraging everyone ages 12 to 17 to get vaccinated before the school year begins.

“The more students, parents and school employees we have vaccinated, the stronger position schools will be in to minimize disruption and have a healthy and successful in-person school year for our kids,” said Governor Scott.

These sites will not offer the booster shot for immunocompromised Vermonters. The state will release more information for the additional shot later this week.

Below is a list of vaccination sites for the remainder of this week. You can walk-in or visit www.healthvermont.gov/MyVaccine to make an appointment. You can also call 855-722-7878.
