WINSTED and TORRINGTON —  Hartford HealthCare held their first ‘CareVan’ clinic on Thursday, Aug. 19 at The Winsted Senior Center.

The mobile health clinic is providing health care services to residents 16 and older, including medical screenings, education and counseling, lab tests, and other services.

Clinics will also provide various Covid-19 vaccines to residents at select dates. 

“People do not need to have a primary care doctor to be seen,” Pamela Tino of Hartford HealthCare’s Community Development said. ”Our clinics give people easier access to health care. If a person has insurance they will be billed. If they do not have insurance, then the cost of services will be free. ”For more information on the ‘CareVan’ and its schedule, which includes future visits to The Winsted Senior Center and Coe Memorial Park’s Civic Center, and Torrington Towers, go to this link: https://hartfordhealthcare.org/health-wellness/neighborhood-health
