Bridgeport health department in need of nurses to administer COVID-19 vaccines

Bridgeport's Department of Public Health officials say they need more registered nurses to help administer the COVID-19 vaccine.
Bridgeport health officials say they are trying to fill positions for registered nurses, but due to a critical shortage of RNs nationwide, doing so has not been easy.
The Bridgeport Department of Public Health is in the process of trying to vaccinate the public following a plan laid out by Gov. Ned Lamont.
Officials say they are also trying to tend to a wide array of other pandemic related priorities.
The department is getting the word out to the health care community to attract registered nurses to help the city.
They say they have contract positions open for RNs that are paid for with state funding.
