TORRINGTON/PRESS RELEASE —  Hartford HealthCare will open its latest COVID19 Vaccination Clinic in Torrington at  the State Armory (153 South Main Street) on Monday, January 25th and will have weekday and Saturday hours. Connecticut recently began vaccinating the public against the virus and expanded guidelines of who can  receive the vaccine to include those 75 years of age and older.  

For your safety, all vaccinations are by appointment only. Walk-in appointments are NOT available. 

The hours of operation for the Torrington Clinic beginning January 25 will be Monday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.,  Wednesday 10:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., and Saturday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Beginning Monday, Feb. 1 and beyond the clinic will  operate four days per week: Monday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Wednesday 10:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., Friday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.  

To schedule an appointment, if you have a MyChartPLUS account already, simply log in, go to “Visits” or  “Appointments” and choose a Hartford HealthCare vaccine clinic location. If you do NOT have a  MyChartPLUS account, you can set one up on the MyChartPLUS.org website. After scheduling your  appointment, please ECHECK-IN prior to your arrival. This will make sure we have all your information,  and that you are providing consent to get the vaccine. If you have questions or issues scheduling your  vaccine in MyChartPLUS, please call the MyChart support line at 860.972.4993. 

If you need help making an appointment or prefer to schedule your appointment by phone, call the  Hartford HealthCare Access Center at 860.827.7690 or toll-free at 833.943.5721. For the most up-to-date  information and scheduling help visit Hartfordhealthcare.org/vaccine

When visiting a vaccine clinic, please remember to wear your mask when leaving your vehicle, and at all  times until you return to your vehicle. If this is your first dose, you will be given a small card from the  Centers for Disease Control and Prevention with your name and other information. Save this card and  bring it with you for your second dose. Be prepared to sit in one of the chairs provided and wait about 15 minutes — the “observation time.” 

Those currently eligible include healthcare personnel, long-term care facility residents, medical First  Responders, and individuals age 75 and older. Hartford Healthcare has administered over 30,000 vaccines  to date and offers additional clinics in Hartford, Wethersfield, Norwich, and Shelton.
