Although there is no official announcement as to which groups will be eligible for the vaccination next, it is likely that the state of CT will continue to issue the vaccination by descending age group. Individuals 45+ can likely expect to be among the next couple of groups to be announced. Be sure to keep checking https://portal.ct.gov/Vaccine-Portal for updates on eligibility and other vaccine-related resources, including what to expect when getting vaccinated.
To book a vaccine appointment, residents can register through the VAMS (Vaccine Administration Management System) system online. VAMS will show various clinics throughout the state that have available appointments and will allow residents to book them.
