Our COVID-19 community testing with Waveny LifeCare will continue at Lapham Center with two days of testing this week and next. Testing will now be on Tuesdays and Thursdays only due to decreased demand. The SignUpGenius link to sign up for this week's Thursday (May 20th) and next Tuesday (May 25th) testing dates is here.
COVID testing at Lapham will be discontinued after June 1st due to very limited demand and increased testing availability in the area. We thank Waveny LifeCare for assisting the Town in providing convenient PCR testing for our residents for over seven months. We would also like to thank our Health Department staff and volunteers who supported the Lapham test site the past seven months.
There will be a Pfizer clinic for those aged 12 and over this Wednesday May 19th at New Canaan High School. This clinic will be a mix of second dose (already scheduled on the white vaccination card, so no need to sign up for a slot) and 800 new first doses. The SignUpGenius link for this clinic for 800 first dose appointments is here (Please note this clinic will be held at the High School and not Lapham Center). Also please bring all required VAMS forms for this clinic.
For the 12-15 year olds, a signed parental consent form is required and a parent/or guardian must be present with the child at the clinic with both sets of VAMS forms completed for the child. Those aged 16-17 must have a signed parental consent form and the VAMS forms but do not have to have a parent/or guardian present. Ages 18 and up only need to bring both sets of VAMS forms.
Please remember to bring both sets of VAMS forms and signed parental consent form (if applicable) which are linked to the SignUpGenius registration and also found in the red COVID box on town website at www.newcanaan.info
If you are scheduled for a 2nd dose Moderna vaccination appointment this Thursday, May 20th, at Lapham Center, our Health Department reminds you to bring your white vaccination card to your 2nd dose appointments so they can add the 2nd dose vaccination information to your card.
Our Health Department continues to offer on-site mobile vaccinations to any New Canaan business that has employees still in need of vaccinations and wanting to be vaccinated. The vaccination is completely free, but business owners/managers must schedule the on-site vaccinations with the Health Department by calling 203-594-3020. This also includes local contractors with construction sites in New Canaan. The Health Department will provide Moderna or Janssen (J&J) vaccines for the on-site vaccinations so employees must be aged 18 and over to meet the FDA approval guidelines.
