Governor Lamont Announces Connecticut Remains on Track To Expand COVID-19 Vaccine Eligibility To All Adults on Thursday, April 1

More Than 100 Additional Pharmacies in Connecticut Are Being Added to Connecticut’s Vaccination Program

(HARTFORD, CT) – Governor Ned Lamont today announced that the State of Connecticut is on track to expand its COVID-19 vaccination program to the final group of adults, including all individuals between the ages of 16 and 44, on Thursday, April 1, 2021. Individuals in this age group will have access to schedule appointments beginning Thursday morning.

To schedule an appointment, Connecticut residents should visit ct.gov/covidvaccine and enter their zip code in the space provided. From there, they will be presented a list of the closest available clinics and instructions for how to make an appointment at each clinic. Those without access to the internet can call Connecticut’s Vaccine Appointment Assist Line at 877-918-2224. The assist line is available seven days a week from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Appointments are required in advance at all vaccination clinics in the state.

Individuals who are 16 and 17 years old are reminded that they should only sign up for a clinic that is offering the vaccine made by Pfizer, as that is the only vaccine at this point that has been approved for those ages by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Connecticut is currently ranked second in the nation in percentage of population that has received at least one dose.

“Connecticut’s healthcare providers have been doing a tremendous job getting the vaccine to our residents, and the reason why our state is among the most vaccinated in the country is because of the remarkable work they have been doing,” Governor Lamont said. “As we prepare to expand vaccine eligibility to the final group of adults on Thursday morning, there is going to be an initial rush of people who attempt to make appointments during the first couple of days, similar to what we experienced when we expanded to other age groups. I urge everyone to please be patient and check back as new appointments are being added every day. Thanks to the efforts of the Biden administration, the number of doses being delivered to Connecticut is significantly increasing each week, and I am confident that within this next month we will get the vaccine to everyone who wants it.”

“With the recent increase in cases in Connecticut, it is crucial that everyone who wants a vaccine, gets one as quickly as possible,” Connecticut Acting Public Health Commissioner Dr. Deidre Gifford said. “I am extremely proud of everyone involved in our vaccine program – the federal government, our local health departments and community partners, our vaccine providers, the National Guard – and thankful for the leadership of Governor Lamont and his team, who have all helped to speed up Connecticut’s delivery of vaccines and make tomorrow’s final expansion to all adults possible. Through everyone’s efforts, we are now able to offer vaccine to all adults months earlier than originally planned. While general availability of vaccines is a cause for celebration, we must also remember to keep up our guard against the spread of COVID-19. Even after you are vaccinated, you should continue to wear masks, social distance, avoid large gatherings and test and isolate if you are sick.”

More than one hundred additional pharmacies to begin offering vaccinations

Governor Lamont today also announced that more than 100 additional pharmacies throughout Connecticut will begin offering COVID-19 vaccines over the next several days, adding to the growing list of locations where the state’s residents can be vaccinated. Individuals are reminded that appointments must be made in advance prior to receiving the vaccine at all locations statewide.
