New Haven Mayor Justin Elicker

Several weeks ago, the first known case of the Omicron variant was detected in New Haven as well as four additional cases in New Haven County. Early indications are that this new variant is the most transmissible one we’ve seen to date. While the statewide rise in cases and the emergence of Omicron is concerning, there is reason for optimism. Booster shots of the COVID-19 vaccine increase neutralizing antibodies and booster shots are effective against the Omicron variant. 

  • The CDC and FDA have authorized booster shots for individuals aged 16 or older.
  • The New Haven Health Department, located at 54 Meadow Street in New Haven is offering vaccines. Clinic hours this week are 9 AM to 7 PM on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Vaccines for ages 5+ and booster doses are available. No appointment is required.
  • You should continue to implement safe practices – physical distancing and frequent handwashing, and wearing a facemask. And it’s more important than ever to get vaccinated and get your booster.
  • For more information visit this website: City of New Haven or call: 203-946-6999.
  • Thanks for doing your part to stop the spread!
