Underlying conditions include obesity, medical complexity, severe genetic disorders, severe neurologic disorders, inherited metabolic disorders, Diabetes, Asthma (moderate to severe), Down syndrome, chronic lung disease, immunosuppression due to cancer or immune-weakening medications, Sickle Cell disease, smoking, chronic kidney disease, hypertension, and Cystic fibrosis.
PHA highly recommends that you register and be vaccinated as soon as possible if you qualify.
Telephone: Those without internet access can call Connecticut’s COVID Vaccine Appointment Assistance Line at 877-918-2224. The phone system was created in partnership with the Department of Public Health and United Way of Connecticut and is specifically targeted to provide support for eligible vaccine recipients who have limited technology access, or who have language, disability, or other barriers that could prevent them from using existing self-scheduling options successfully. The line will take calls Mondays through Fridays from 8:00am to 4:30pm and will offer a call-back option when all contact specialists are busy serving other callers. The team will aim to return calls as soon as possible, with the goal of same-day response.
