Vernon's COVID-19 Community Vaccination Program


The Town of Vernon ran a highly successful campaign to vaccinate the community against COVID-19. This effort included vaccination clinics at the Vernon Senior Center and Mobile Vaccination Clinics conducted throughout our region. The clinics were open to all people.

The vaccination program has been paused because there is adequate supply of vaccine in the community.
