Stronger Than COVID Campaign 

Follow this link to the main CT.gov/COVID website for the most up-to-date information on COVID-19.

Stronger than COVID is a campaign that ran in late Summer and early Fall by the State of Connecticut on a variety of platforms including social, digital, print, radio, and TV. The campaign highlights Connecticut's diverse immigrant population - and encourages everyone to unite in the fight against COVID-19 by continuing to wash hands, keep a distance, wear a mask, and get tested. The assets from the campaign are available to organizations, municipalities, and others who would like to share them. Many different languages and American Sign Language Videos are available on this page.

COVID-19 Vaccination Scheduling Options

Good news, residents, workers and students ages 12+ are now eligible to get the COVID-19 vaccination in Connecticut. 

Wait. If you have already heard from your medical provider about receiving the vaccine, you're all set. Please continue to work with them to ensure you get an appointment scheduled. Also - if you already have an account in the Vaccine Administration Management System (or VAMS), click here to log into VAMS and schedule your appointment.

Not all providers use the same scheduling system. You can use the search tool on the main vaccine information page to locate a vaccine site near you, and then  you will either click "Schedule in Provider Site" or "Schedule in VAMS" to be redirected to that provider’s scheduling system.

NEW - Connecticut residents are now able to receive a COVID-19 Vaccine, at more than 50 locations, without an appointment. For the most up-to-date list of walk-up clinics, visit ct.gov/covidvaccine/walkup.
