Lt. Gov. Susan Bysiewicz was in Stamford Tuesday to encourage families to have their children vaccinated against COVID-19 before the start of the school year.
Bysiewicz was joined by the Department of Public Health commissioner and the Stamford director of health at a mobile vaccination clinic at Cove Island Park.
Everyone six months or older is now eligible to get a COVID-19 vaccine.
Everyone five and older is eligible for a booster shot.
The clinic at Cove Island Park is offering vaccines for kids six months to 11-years-old, and those 12 and older.
In a recent Kaiser Family Foundation survey, 43% of U.S. parents said they won't vaccinate their children under 5 years old.
In Connecticut, nearly 8% of kids in that age group have gotten at least one dose of the vaccine.
