For all individuals aged 65 and older: The Milford Health Department follows direction from the State regarding the process that residents over 65 years of age will be able to register to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. If you are 65 years of age or older,  you qualify for Phase 1b, and are currently eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. All eligible residents are required to make an appointment in advance of receiving the vaccine. To find available vaccination clinics throughout the state, residents can visit ct.gov/covidvaccine and enter their zip code.

Given the currently scarce supply of vaccine, it will take time for all individuals in Phase 1b to receive the vaccine. Individuals can also visit the CT Department of Public Health’s main COVID-19 Vaccination Portal for the most up-to-date information about vaccine distribution in the State. As we approach Phase 1b, please be sure to speak with your healthcare provider about their recommendations for receiving the vaccine. If you have already heard from your medical provider about receiving the vaccine, you do not need to do anything else.
