Sen. Richard Blumenthal, Lt. Gov. Susan Bysiewicz and Rep. Jim Himes visited a mass vaccination clinic in Stamford today.  
The three visited the mass vaccine site at 1 Elmcroft Road at the Building and Land Technology, the former Pitney Bowes Headquarters.
They discussed the city's efforts to get vulnerable populations vaccinated.
The site is run by Stamford Health, and opened a few weeks ago.
Stamford Health also operates a vaccine clinic in the Wheeler Building at Stamford Hospital.
Depending on supply, the health care system aims to vaccinate around 3,000 people a day between the two sites.
The city also has a No Barriers program to make sure those in underserved communities get vaccinated.
Americares has partnered with Stamford Health to get their low-income and uninsured patients vaccinated through the program.
Mayor David Martin says it's thanks to partnerships like that the city can get more shots in arms.
Bysiewicz says both she and Gov. Lamont are laser-focused on making sure that everyone in Connecticut has access to the COVID-19 vaccine.
