Governor Scott Announces Holiday Vaccination and Testing Clinics

21 December 2021

Montpelier, Vt. - In advance of the holidays, Governor Phil Scott today announced a series of COVID-19 testing clinics providing access to rapid tests across Vermont. 10,000 rapid LAMP tests and 60,000 at-home rapid antigen tests will be distributed through a combination of testing sites and community organizations. This represents a significant expansion over pre-Thanksgiving testing, where in comparison the State of Vermont offered 1,200 rapid tests.

The expansion of rapid antigen tests is in addition to Vermont’s nation-leading PCR testing program. Both over the past 30 days, and the last week, Vermont has led the nation in testing. For context, in the past 30 days, Vermont has tested at more than twice the rate of the third highest state in the nation.

This week, sixteen testing sites around the state will offer rapid LAMP tests through scheduled appointments on December 23 and 30.

Additionally, more than 60,000 at-home antigen tests will be handed out on a first come, first served basis on December 23, 24, 28, 29, and 30 at distribution sites across the state. Each kit handed out contains two tests. These tests are being offered through walk-ins only and will not appear in the testing registration system on the Department of Health website. All sites will be closed on Christmas and New Year’s Day.

The number of tests and clinics has increased since they were initially announced at the Scott Administration’s weekly media briefing earlier today. Additional sites may be added and posted on the Department of Health website.

Additional tests are being distributed by partners to vulnerable populations, including to BIPOC Vermonters, individuals experiencing food insecurities, homelessness, and economic hardship.

Along with expanded testing sites, Governor Scott announced available vaccine clinics over the holiday season. Governor Scott, Health Commissioner Mark Levine, MD and Human Services Secretary Mike Smith all emphasized at today’s press conference the importance of getting a booster shot as soon as possible. Vermonters should consider themselves fully protected against the virus if they have been vaccinated and received a booster shot. People are eligible for a boost shot if it has been more than 6 months since their second mRNA vaccine dose, or it’s been two months since their Johnson & Johnson shot.
