Governor Lamont has announced that Connecticut residents ages 65 and up may register for the COVID-19 vaccination beginning this Thursday, February 11.

The governor has urged residents to remain patient as the state balances the weekly vaccine supply (approximately 60,000) with demand (approximately 350,000 between the ages of 65-74).

Please note: If you are eligible under Phase 1a (healthcare workers, medical first responders, nursing homes residents and staff), or if you are 75 years of age or older, and have still not been vaccinated, you are still eligible to register at this time.
