Brookfield Health Department Offers COVID-19 Vaccinations for Children

The Brookfield Health Department is pleased to announce that it has partnered with the New Milford Health Department for the vaccination of Children ages 5 through 17. Clinics will be held on Tuesdays and Saturdays in New Milford at 2 Pickett District Road. Appointments are required.

Approximately 40% of Children ages 5 to 11 may be silent carriers of the virus and show no symptoms whatsoever. Yet, they can transmit the disease to parents and grandparents, who may become seriously ill, even when fully vaccinated. Thus, it becomes that much more important that children also be vaccinated. Vaccinated children do NOT have to quarantine and can continue to participate in extracurricular activities, even if they have come into contact with a positive case.

More information is available on the New Milford Health Department Web Site: newmilford.org/vaccineinfo or by calling the Department at (860)355-6035 or via E-mail at  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
