Guide to getting the COVID-19 vaccine
Updated: November 5, 2021
Making sure you and your family get the COVID-19 vaccine is one of our priorities. We know you have many questions about the vaccine, eligibility, where and how to book an appointment, and more. This step-by-step guide will help answer them.
Step 1: Check your eligibility.
All individuals who are 5 years of age or older and live, work, or attend school in Connecticut are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Learn more from the Connecticut Department of Public Health (CT DPH).
Step 2: Book your COVID-19 vaccine appointment.
We have the Pfizer® COVID-19 vaccine in stock at nearly all of our pediatric and adult primary care offices. ProHealth patients who are unvaccinated or meet the requirements for a booster shot may be able to get the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine at an upcoming visit.
You can also find a statewide list and map of COVID-19 vaccine clinics through 2-1-1 of Connecticut. You’ll enter your ZIP code or town in the location box on the right. Then, press the yellow search icon.
Those who do not have access to technology to schedule an appointment online may call Connecticut’s COVID-19 Vaccine Appointments Assistance Line. Due to high volume, hold times may vary. Phone: 1-877-918-2224. Hours: Monday–Friday, 8 a.m.–4:30 p.m.
