The State of Connecticut is expecting about 45,000 COVID-19 vaccine doses on a weekly basis from the federal government. We now know that the State will be taking a tiered approach in Phase 1B as we work to vaccinate the nearly 1.4 million people in the recently updated Phase 1B category.
Many of you have been asking about scheduling options for the COVID-19 vaccine and I am pleased to report that the portal is now open where residents can make vaccine appointments. CT DPH, Hartford HealthCare and UConn Health went live today with online portals where residents can make vaccine appointments. Appointments are available to anyone age 75 and older. You do not need to be an existing patient with these hospital systems.
