Where to Get A Vaccine Now if You're 75-Plus . . . And These Groups are Next.
Hartford HealthCare has begun vaccinating Connecticut residents 75 and older to protect against COVID-19.
People in that age group with a MyChartPlus account already can log in and make an appointment at a Hartford HealthCare vaccine clinic.
If they don't have a MyChartPlus account, they can set one up on Hartford HealthCare's MyChartPlus.org website.
People can book appointments at Hartford HealthCare vaccine clinics in Wethersfield, Norwich, Shelton and Hartford. More sites will be added.
Next week, the state is expected to expand vaccine availability to more groups, including those working in:
• Education (K-12 early childhood, child care, higher education).
• Public transit.
• Delivery (US Post Office, FedEx, UPS, etc.).
• Social and government services such as food banks, public health, town clerks, clergy offering in-person services, meal delivery to the elderly, elected officials.
• Food service, restaurant and grocery workers.
• Essential retail.
• Agriculture and farming.
• Drinking water, wastewater and solid waste.
In all, the state hopes to vaccinate about 800,000 people in Phase 1B.
