Given the currently limited supply of vaccine, it will take time for all individuals in Phase 1b to receive the vaccine. Please review the information below to see your available options for receiving a COVID-19 vaccine. If you have already heard from your medical provider about receiving the vaccine, you do not need to do anything else.
While appointments may not be available immediately at this time, please know that this is due to the limited amount of vaccine provided by the federal government. We expect that access to appointments will grow, particularly for priority populations, as our supply from the federal government increases in the coming weeks.
Here is a link to a webpage on the State of Connecticut’s website that has more information and resources.
