Dear Friends and Neighbors,
On Monday afternoon, Governor Lamont announced that the state will move forward with an age-based approach for distributing the coronavirus vaccine beginning on March 1st. Initially, the phased roll out included such factors as age, occupation, pre-existing conditions, and residency. Most recently, eligibility was expanded to those 65 and older under “Phase 1b.”
The planned eligibility timeline:
In addition to the age-based eligibility, preK-12 school staff and teachers, and professional childcare providers will be eligible to receive the vaccine in March at dedicated clinics that will be set up specifically for those sectors. Educators and childcare professionals will soon receive information from their school administrators and employers on when their dedicated clinics will be provided.
