Instructions to schedule your Covid shot

I want to share what I learned in getting a Covid shot to help you schedule your own appointment. I started with looking up eligibility at the portal.

Then I went to the Department of Public Health and registered with VAMS. You will get a confirmation email and a sperate email with a link to login and schedule your appointment. I had a hard time with VAMS so I ended up calling (at the bottom of page) and scheduled over the phone. The appointments are 2-3 weeks out.

All the links are below.

CT Vaccine Portal Stay Safe. Get Vaccinated! Am I Eligible for the COVID-19 Vaccine? Check your eligibility. Schedule your vaccination. CHECK MY ELIGIBILITY NOW

Find a Vaccine Provider Near You GO Schedule your COVID-19 vaccine. Get Notified When You're Eligible Stay connected and never miss an alert.

It will then send you to DPH to register with VAMS to book your appointment.
