State Rep. Harry Arora – ALERT : CT Residents 65+ can make vaccination appointments

Posted on February 9, 2021 by jdooley


Dear friends and neighbors,

While the initial press release from the Governor’s office stated that the 65+ would be allowed to make appointments as of Thursday, Feb 11, I am hearing first hand that VAMS and most providers are allowing 65+ to make appointments NOW.

Sincerely,

Harry Arora

Here is the news many of our seniors have been waiting for. CT residents age 65-74 will be eligible to make an appointment for the COVID vaccine starting this Thursday, February 11. Vaccinations for individuals over the age of 75 and those within phase 1a will continue.

Here are three ways to make your appointment:

 

  1. VAMS online system: VAMS is the Vaccine Administration Management System and can be used to schedule appointments at multiple clinics across the state. To make an appointment using this system, click here.
  2. Call Connecticut’s COVID-19 Vaccine Appointment Assist Line: Connecticut’s COVID-19 vaccine appointment assist line is open from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., seven days a week. To make an appointment, call 877-918-2224.
  3. Schedule directly with a hospital system or pharmacy

Based on the number of seniors in this category and the number of vaccines CT gets every week, everyone will be able to get a vaccine within a few weeks. All vaccinations will be appointment only, no walk-ins allowed. If you need help, please do not hesitate to email me or give me a call at 203-571-9325.
