COVID-19 Mobile Vaccine Clinic


On Monday, June 7th the International Institute of Cosmetology (IIC) hosted a mobile COVID-19 vaccine walk-in clinic provided by Griffin Hospital. The clinic gave people the option between the Moderna , Pfizer or Johnson and Johnson vaccines.


The mobile vaccine clinic concept started in March 2021 in Connecticut to accommodate a wide range of locations throughout Connecticut. Griffin Health has as many as 35 mobile units set up daily. In some cases, two mobile units are sent to a single location if the anticipated number of vaccines that are needed is high. International Institute of Cosmetology was able to make vaccines readily available for educators, students, graduates, administration and the local public.  Some walk-ins were able to get their second vaccine at the clinic if they attended another Griffin Health mobile clinic for their first dose. For more information about clinics (both for first and second doses) through Griffin Health, please refer to this link:

School Dean Mark Anderson stated, “We were very pleased to work with Griffin Health to do our small part in serving our schools and the public. I was happy to see that IIC educators and students took the opportunity to receive their vaccine. I was also pleased to learn that through our social media efforts, as well as good old-fashioned signs on the sidewalk that members of the public received their vaccine at IIC. I want to thank the professionals from Griffin Health who worked with us to make this clinic possible, and we look forward to working with them again at the scheduled follow-up clinic on July 5th at the Plainville campus.”
