Montpelier, VT (STL.News) Governor Phil Scott announced a series of vaccination clinics that will be open at schools across Vermont this week for anyone ages 12 or older. You can just walk-in or visit www.healthvermont.gov/MyVaccine to make an appointment. You can also call 855-722-7878.
Governor Scott and health officials encourage everyone ages 12 to 17 to get vaccinated. “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.
