Starting April 1, Governor Ned Lamont significantly expanded those eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine. The vaccine is available to all Connecticut residents 16 years and older. “As we prepare to expand vaccine eligibility to the final group of adults on Thursday morning, there is going to be an initial rush of people who attempt to make appointments during the first couple of days, similar to what we experienced when we expanded to other age groups. I urge everyone to please be patient and check back as new appointments are being added every day. Thanks to the efforts of the Biden administration, the number of doses being delivered to Connecticut is significantly increasing each week, and I am confident that within this next month we will get the vaccine to everyone who wants it.” Governor Lamont stated. If you are interested in getting a vaccine, to schedule an appointment, visit ct.gov/covidvaccine and enter your zip code in the space provided. From there, there will be presented a list of the closest available clinics and instructions for how to make an appointment at each clinic. Those without access to the internet can call Connecticut’s Vaccine Appointment Assist Line at 877-918-2224. The assist line is available seven days a week from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Appointments are required in advance at all vaccination clinics in the state.
