Dental clinic eyed in Wells River

NEWBURY—Little Rivers Health Care is expanding its footprint in the short term and the long term.
First, Little Rivers has set up a COVID-19 vaccine clinic in the former Newbury Health Center.
According to Andrew Barter, Little Rivers Chief Operating Officer, it is a state-based clinic and vaccination eligibility is determined by the Vermont Department of Health.
People now eligible are long-term care residents and staff, health care workers, and first responders; and individuals 70 and older.
Individuals aged 65 and up are estimated to be eligible in early March. In late March, those with certain high-risk health conditions can receive the vaccine. These estimates are subject to change based on federal vaccine allocations.
