COVID-19 Vaccination: Employer Information and Enrollment

Vaccinations

Connecticut employers play a critical role in helping people gain access to the COVID-19 vaccine. Your assistance today will help support the safe and efficient distribution of the vaccine to hundreds of thousands of our workers and residents.

A lot of information being sent out about the vaccine. This Employer Information and Enrollment page will give you what you need to know so you can protect your employees and get back to business.

We are in Phase 1b of the vaccine rollout. Currently, we are only enrolling people who are 75 years of age and older.

Here are the categories of workers who will be able to enroll for the vaccine when we begin vaccinating our frontline essential employees:  

  • Healthcare personnel 

  • First responders 

  • Agricultural workers, including farmworkers 

  • Food service and restaurants 

  • U.S. Postal Service workers 

  • Manufacturing workers

If you're an employee, and you have not yet heard from your employer about yet – please be patient. Your employer will be coordinating your COVID-19 vaccination process and more information should be coming soon.


Do your employees fall under the Phase 1b?

If your employees are eligible for the COVID-19, you may use the State's Vaccine Administration Management System (VAMS) to support them in scheduling an appointment, or work through another provider. You can start the process in VAMS here.

You may also work with a provider to get your employees access to vaccinations as well. Below is an initial list of providers offering direct vaccine clinics for employer groups:  

 

For Self-Employed and Independent Contractors

Anyone who is self-employed, an independent contractor, or otherwise not affiliated with the employer group but do meet the criteria for Phase 1b, can find more details about how to access the COVID-19 vaccine here.

 

Determining Eligibility

You should use your judgment to make sure that the right people are getting access to the vaccine based on the definitions provided by state and federal government. Please coordinate with your employer coordinator to ensure the correct staff can schedule appointments. You do not have to show "proof" or documentation that each employee belongs in Phase 1b.
