A pop-up COVID-19 vaccine clinic was held in Hartford on Saturday.

The clinic marks the fourth pop-up COVID-19 vaccine clinic and was held at Dunkin Donuts Park.

Hartford Mayor Luke Bronin spoke at the clinic and reminded eligible residents how they can sign up to get their vaccine.

There are two ways to sign up:

If you can't get to an appointment with your own car, the city will give you a ride. You can call 211 to set that up.

For residents who are not yet eligible, you are urged to help someone you know or even someone in the neighborhood get an appointment.

"This has got to be a community effort," Bronin said.

The clinic at Dunkin Donuts Park is being supported by the state's vaccine allocation and is conducted by the City of Hartford's Health and Human Services Department.

The vaccinations are given by nurses from the city's health department and the state's Medical Reserve Corps, along with students from the University of Saint Joseph and UConn, city officials added.

There are now at least six permanent or semi permanent vaccine clinics in Hartford including at hospitals, CVS and community vaccination sites.

Do the COVID-19 vaccines reduce the spread of the coronavirus or just hospitalizations? Will you need to get it every year? And can you get by with just one dose? These are just a few of the lingering questions we’ve heard as COVID-19 vaccines roll out across the country. LX News spoke to Dr. Richard Novak, chief of infectious diseases at the University of Illinois at Chicago, to find out what doctors know.
