[ARCHIVED] Accelerating COVID-19 Vaccine General Availability in Connecticut

Seal of the Governor of Connecticut 1200x1200

Because of the efficient speed at which Connecticut’s vaccine providers have been getting doses out, Governor Lamont announced that the state plans to accelerate its vaccine program even further. All adults in Connecticut over the age of 16 will now be eligible to schedule a vaccination appointment beginning April 1, 2021 – several days earlier than originally planned. (Previously, the eligibility date for this age group was April 5.)

Those who are currently eligible to receive the vaccine in Connecticut include:

  • All individuals over the age of 45;
  • Healthcare personnel;
  • Medical first responders;
  • Residents and staff of long-term care facilities;
  • Residents and staff of select congregate settings; and
  • PreK-12 school staff and professional childcare providers.
