Vermont officials said the state would begin to wind down state-sponsored vaccination clinics

In the latest shift in the COVID response, Vermont officials said the state would begin to wind down state-sponsored vaccination clinics and take down the Health Department’s online appointment portal. Health Commissioner Dr. Mark Levine and Agency of Human Services Secretary Jenny Samuelson discussed the upcoming changes during the state’s media briefing Tuesday. Levine noted that after more than a year of hosting and sponsoring a variety of mass clinics across the state, at community centers, schools, businesses, fairgrounds and the like in cooperation with a number of partners, the state would soon cease those operations while continuing to promote vaccination awareness.
