As Connecticut’s vaccination program continues, it is important for all residents to schedule appointments according to the state’s priority vaccination program. Currently, the state is focused on vaccinating those residents who are 75 years of age or older. It is expected the priority groups will expand during the month of February as more vaccine doses become available. The best place to access information on vaccine priority scheduling is via .
“The United Way of Connecticut has been a key partner in this tremendous effort to get as many Connecticut residents vaccinated as possible. Expanding the number of operators, hours each day, and moving to seven days a week shows how seriously we are taking this effort,” Acting DPH Commissioner Dr. Deidre Gifford said. “As supplies of vaccine doses increase, we will be prepared to expand vaccinations at a rapid pace.”
“We have been working to expand access to vaccine appointments for months and we will continue to innovate to make this historic effort to save lives a success. The addition of staff and expansion of hours and the move to seven day a week capacity puts Connecticut in position to maintain a leadership role in this mass vaccination program,” said Lisa Tepper Bates, President and CEO of the United Way of Connecticut. “We are thankful for the hard work of our partners in state government.”
