UPDATE: Town of New Canaan Continues Offering COVID Boosters and Testing

Due to technical difficulties with the SignUpGenius on some of the links sent out last night a new booster clinic link has been created. New link is below. The testing link remains the same so no need to re-sign up if you successfully signed up last night. We apologize for the issues and they are now corrected. 

 Due to continued demand for boosters our Health Department is planning another large booster vaccination clinic for Thursday, January 27th at Irwin House in Irwin Park (848 Weed Street).  When registering, please indicate in the comments portion of SignUpGenius your vaccination type(Moderna, Pfizer, or J&J) and please bring the required one page form completed along with your white vaccination cards to your booster appointment. Boosters are available to anyone aged 12 and over and it has been at least 5 months since second dose for those aged 12-17 and over. Those aged 12-15 are required to have a parent present in addition to the required forms. The registration link for the Thursday, January 27th booster clinic at Irwin Park is here

 Next week, we will continue a new weekly community PCR COVID-19 testing partnership with Progressive Diagnostics for residents who have traveled or otherwise wish to be tested. The Town partnership with Progressive Diagnostics will continue next week with PCR COVID-19 testing available (for New Canaan residents only) on Monday, January 24th , Wednesday, January 26th and Friday, January 28th from 7:00 a.m. to 10 a.m. at Irwin House in Irwin Park (848 Weed Street).  Pre-registration is required and you must bring your insurance card, and a photo ID to your test appointment. Your insurance will be billed a $100 lab fee by Progressive Diagnostics.  No walk-ins are permitted. Turnaround time for PCR test results is the same day as testing with a maximum of up to 24 hours and will be received via email in the lab portal, for which you will receive instructions on how to access at your test appointment.

 To register for PCR COVID-19 testing for next Monday, January 24th,  Wednesday, January 26th and Friday, January 28TH please click on the following SignUpGenius link here.

 You must complete a separate registration for each individual to be tested.  As a reminder, lab requires a separate email and registration for each individual being tested so if your child does not have an email address we suggest creating a free Gmail or similar free email account for your child’s registration.
