Monday will mark the first day that people 75 and older, along with other eligible patients will get to roll up their sleeves to get their COVID-19 vaccine at the Floyd Little Athletic Center at Hillhouse High School in New Haven.
It's the latest effort by the city to boost up vaccinations after some early logistical issues. The goal is to ensure that those who are eligible can receive their shot.
At least 22 vaccination centers will be set up inside the Floyd Little Athletic Center.
The city is partnering with Yale New Haven Health to help with vaccine distribution. A second vaccine site is located at the Lanman Center on Ashman Street. The goal of the new sites is both accessibility and equity for all communities who need to get vaccinated.
Health and city leaders are formulating plans to offer mobile sites in the near future at different housing authority sites.
New Haven's Health Department said The Medical Reserve Corps will help with vaccine distribution and different nursing students from Quinnipiac University and other area universities will help with administering shots.
The Floyd Little Athletic Center will open on Monday and is open seven days a week. Appointments are required.
