The Next Phase of Connecticut’s COVID Vaccine Rollout Begins on March 1st
The next phase of eligibility for the COVID vaccine begins in Connecticut on March 1st. All Connecticut residents and people who work in Connecticut and are 55 years of age or older will be eligible for the vaccine.

Frontline educators and child care providers will be also be eligible and will be scheduled for appointments through their employers. This includes Pre-K-12 teachers, paraprofessionals, custodial staff, food service providers, school bus drivers, and child care providers as well as in-school administrative staff (but does not include individuals who are not required to work on-site in a school).

211 Connecticut worked in close partnership with the State of Connecticut, Department of Public Health, and vaccine providers across our state to create a list of public COVID-19 Immunization Clinics. The public directory of vaccine clinics is available at www.211ct.org/vaccineclinics.

All vaccine clinics require an appointment to be made in advance. When viewing the directory of vaccine clinics, click on ‘More Details’ for specific information about how you can schedule an appointment at each location.

Those eligible to receive the vaccine who are unable to self-schedule an appointment due to lack of internet access or access to technology, a disability or a language barrier can call the COVID Vaccine Appointment Assist Line at 877-918-2224. The Assist Line is open seven days a week, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
