As of April 1, everyone 16 and older who lives, works or studies in Connecticut is now eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

We are prioritizing appointments for individuals with medical conditions considered high risk with COVID infection.

All available vaccines (Pfizer and Moderna) are safe and effective in preventing COVID-19. You should talk to your healthcare provider if you have questions about getting vaccinated and inform your vaccinator of any allergies or health conditions.
