The Town of Lyme is encouraging all residents who haven’t participated yet in the U.S. Census to do so now, as our town is currently lagging behind the national and state census response rate at 46.2 percent. (The current national response rate is 50.7 percent; Connecticut’s response rate is 52.4 percent.) Census results are the basis for congressional representation and help determine how more than $675 billion in federal funds is distributed to states and communities across the country. Residents can take the Census online at https://2020census.gov.
The Ledge Light Health District (LLHD) will hold a free vaccine clinic on Monday, Feb. 6, from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m., at the Lymes’ Senior Center. The clinic will offer residents a choice of a regular flu shot (not a high dose) or a Covid vaccine shot or both. The vaccines are available to anyone over the age of 18, with no cost requirement. The vaccines will be offered on a first-come, first-serve basis until supplies run out. The clinic is offering walk-up service only; no reservations will be taken. Residents who want to receive the Covid vaccine should bring their Covid vaccination card with them.
