Vernon health and town leaders are ramping up their efforts to get more people vaccinated.
Medical workers and volunteers administered at least 400 shots on Saturday at the town's senior center.
Patients 65 and older received Moderna's COVID-19 vaccine. Leaders said they have the resources to give out additional shots and all they need is more supply.
“We’re able to actually vaccinate between 600 and 1,000 people a day,” said Town of Vernon Emergency Management Director Michael Purcaro.
“If we get the doses, we will get them to people. We’re doing multiple clinics a day -- small ones, big ones, huge ones, and we can make it bigger,” added Priority Urgent Care of Ellington and Unionville Medical Director Daksh Rampal.
