May 18, 2021 – Altek Electronics in Torrington recently partnered with Hartford HealthCare’s Business-to-Business Vaccination Outreach Program to hold a company clinic to provide convenient onsite vaccinations to their employees and family members.
A team from Charlotte Hungerford Hospital — including nurses, a physician, registrar and paramedic — were on hand on Thursday, May 13, to provide 22 vaccinations, increasing the company’s vaccination rate to 70 percent. Some employees also brought their spouses and young adult children. All were given a choice of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
“We were looking for an opportunity to offer the vaccine and the HHC program was the perfect fit.” said Altek Human Resources Manager Michelle Hatteyer. “It’s so wonderful to keep the momentum going with our state vaccination program and this is one of the best and easiest ways to get this accomplished.” added Dr. Stephanie Fowler.
