Dear neighbors, 

Here are a few public health updates you might want to know about. 

COVID Vaccinations for Young Children - a note from Mayor Elicker

Hi, this is Mayor Justin Elicker with an important message for New Haven residents regarding the new COVID-19 vaccines for children ages 6 months to 5 years old. Por favor espere para escuchar este mensaje en español.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently approved the Moderna and Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines for children six-months up to 5 years old. Now, all children ages 6 months and older can get vaccinated. Vaccines are a safe, effective and proven way to help keep you and your loved ones safe, and to help stop the spread of COVID-19. 

As a father of children ages 4 and 7 who have both been vaccinated, I can personally attest to the positive experience my family had, and I encourage all residents to prioritize having their children vaccinated prior to the start of the upcoming school year, which begins next month. 

To find a pediatric vaccination clinic and for other information on COVID-19, please go to our website at covid19.newhavenct.gov or call 203-946-6999. Again, that’s covid19.newhavenct.gov or 203-946-6999

Thanks everyone for your continued cooperation and please stay safe.  


Hola, soy el alcalde Justin Elicker con un mensaje importante para los residentes de New Haven sobre las nuevas vacunas contra COVID-19 para niños de seis meses a cinco años. Por favor, espere para poder escuchar este mensaje en español.

 Los Centros para el Control y la Prevención de Enfermedades aprobaron recientemente las vacunas de Moderna y Pfizer contra COVID-19 para niños de seis meses a cinco años. Ahora, todos los niños de 6 meses y mayores pueden vacunarse. Las vacunas son una forma segura, eficaz y comprobada de ayudar a mantener a su ser querido seguro y de ayudar a detener la propagación de COVID-19.

Como padre de niños de 4 y 7 años que han sido vacunados, puedo dar fe personalmente de la experiencia positiva que tuvo mi familia, y animo a todos los residentes a priorizar la vacunación de sus hijos antes del comienzo del próximo año escolar, que comienza el próximo mes.

Para encontrar una clínica de vacunación pediátrica y para obtener más información sobre COVID-19, visite nuestra página web en covid19.newhavenct.gov o llame al 203-946-6999. Nuevamente, eso es covid19.newhavenct.gov o 203-946-6999.

Gracias a todos por su continua cooperación y por favor manténganse seguros.
