Vaccine Available in CT to Anyone 16+ on April 1 - Stamford Moms

So far, 38% of all adults over the age of 16 in Connecticut have received at least one dose, including 80% of all adults over the age of 75.

Connecticut ranks among the top 3 most vaccinated states in the nation.

Because of the efficient speed at which Connecticut’s vaccine providers have been getting doses out, Governor Lamont today announced that the state plans to accelerate its vaccine program even further. All adults in Connecticut over the age of 16 will now be eligible to schedule a vaccination appointment beginning April 1, 2021 – several days earlier than originally planned.(Previously, the eligibility date for this age group was April 5.)

Those who are currently eligible to receive the vaccine in Connecticut include:

  • All individuals over the age of 45;
  • Healthcare personnel;
  • Medical first responders;
  • Residents and staff of long-term care facilities;
  • Residents and staff of select congregate settings; and
  • PreK-12 school staff and professional childcare providers.
