[ARCHIVED] Winooski Community Services Can Help with State Vaccine Registration


The Vermont Department of Health is opening COVID-19 vaccination appointments today (February 16, 2021) for those 55+ with certain high-risk health conditions. 

If you are a Winooski resident 65 or older, our staff can help you complete your registration on the Vermont Department of Health website. Two options are available:

1. Help via the Winooski Senior Center

  • Leave a message on our Senior Support line (24/7): 802 655 6425
  • Someone will get back to you as soon as possible!
  • Free public transportation to the vaccine site is available from the Vermont Public Transit Authority (VTPA). 
    • To request a ride, please call 833 387 7200.
    • Whenever possible, ride requests should be made 48 hours in advance. 
    • People who are COVID-19 positive, symptomatic, or close contacts of COVID-19 positive people must be cleared for public transportation first. 
    • These services are only available to people who are not currently a COVID-19 risk. 
    • VPTA will bill the ride to the appropriate funding source (Medicaid, Elderly/Disabled program or a special federal source). 
    • The actual rides are provided by regional public transportation providers using a combination of volunteer drivers in cars or vans/busses. 
    • These rides are ADA compliant and will accommodate disabled people.
    • Individuals who recently arrived from out of state still need to follow the isolation process before using public transportation.

2. Help via the Winooski Memorial Library

  • Schedule a vaccine registration help session by calling the Library: 802 655 6424
  • Use our "Browse and Borrow" appointment system to schedule a 30-minute support session
  • Just need the internet to make your appointment? In addition to our free indoor wifi, the Library also has a commercial-grade outdoor wifi access point. Sign-in to our network "Winooski Hotspot".
