Community Health Center hosted their first Saturday weekend vaccination clinic in the Lord & Taylor parking lot in Stamford.
Hundreds of cars lined up to get their first dose of the Moderna vaccine. More than 800 people signed up for an appointment.
The clinic is open for those eligible to get it. Thirty percent of doses at the clinic, however, were allocated for early childhood educators.
“Our large push is for early childhood educators to get vaccinated so we can support the younger children,” says Nicole Scalora, a staff nurse at CHC. “That's going to be our goal for every weekend.”
The clinic is open for appointment only and will use any extra doses for their next clinic.
Patients told News 12 they were happy to be waiting in their cars as opposed to the chilly weather. All they had to do was roll up their sleeves and receive their injection.
