The state this week, in cooperation with local health departments, is rolling out 35 new yellow mobile vaccination vans that will initially travel to parts of the state where COVID vaccination rates are trailing. The mobile units are expected to administer the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine, most initially by appointment.
By late April, when the state expects to have at least 60% of residents vaccinated with at least one dose, the vans will provide “walk-up service,” similar to an ice cream truck, Gov. Ned Lamont said. They’ll also be used at high school and college-based clinics.
“You’ll be able to walk up and get a vaccine,” Lamont said.
