Governor Announces Connecticut Will Continue Age-Based Approach to COVID-19 Vaccine Eligibility; Educators and Childcare Providers to Have Dedicated Clinics

In an effort to ensure that Connecticut continues taking the most equitable and efficient approach to quickly administering the COVID-19 vaccine to as many people as possible, Governor Ned Lamont announced on February 21, 2021 that the state will continue with an age-based approach to expanding eligibility to the vaccine, explaining that other previously considered scenarios proved overly complex and confusing, would potentially exacerbate inequities in vaccine distribution, and slow down the process of providing it to Connecticut residents. Educators and childcare providers will be eligible to receive the vaccine in March at dedicated clinics that will be set up specifically for those sectors.

A link to the complete announcement, including the planned schedule for vaccinations for those aged 16 and above, may be found on the State of Connecticut's website.
