Members of the Lyme Ambulance Association met with Brownies Girl Scout Troop 67974 from Lyme-Old Lyme to teach the girls about first aid, 911 calls and how to act in case of emergencies. EMR/Driver Erik Eisensmith and Deputy Chief Ariana Eaton brought an ambulance, showed the tools and equipment they carry to help the community, and explained what the different colors of lights mean in emergency vehicles. All of these helped the girls to earn their first aid badge.
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.
