Gov. Ned Lamont was at a COVID-19 vaccination clinic in Stamford Sunday along with Sen. Richard Blumenthal, Rep. Jim Himes, the mayor and others.
They say the goal is to help the immigrant community gain access to the vaccine.
"Getting people vaccinated in neighborhoods like this one, communities of color, immigrant heavy communities where, sadly, all too often those most vulnerable to COVID are those least likely to get vaccinated," Himes said.
"This doesn't work unless trusted advocates who people believe tell you this is the right thing to do for you, your family, and your community," Lamont said
About 350 doses were administered at the event to people 55 and older.
