Can I get a vaccine?
Connecticut is currently in Phase 1a.
Phase 1a is expected to last until January or early February.
In this phase the following groups are eligible to be vaccinated-
Healthcare Personnel: All paid and unpaid persons serving in healthcare settings who have the potential for direct or indirect exposure to patients of infectious materials.
Long Term Care Facility Residents: Adults who reside in facilities that provide a range of services, including medical and personal care, to persons who are unable to live independently.
First Responders at risk of exposure to COVID-19 through their response to medical emergencies such as Emergency Medical Technicians, Police, and Fire.
Phase 1a does not include healthcare personnel that do not have the potential for direct or indirect exposure to patients or infectious materials. For example, if you are providing telehealth services and do not currently work in a healthcare setting providing in person care, you are not be eligible for vaccine in phase 1a.
Eligible healthcare personnel who wish to be vaccinated should speak with their Employer Coordinator.
This is the person who has been designated to ensure that the right people in your workplace get vaccinated.
