In order to make an appointment, you have a variety of options, including CVS, Walgreens, Stop & Shop, local health districts, the Community Health Center, Yale-New Haven Health, and Hartford HealthCare.
- To access links to all the locations where vaccines are being distributed in our area, please go to the CT Vaccine Portal. When you type in our zip code (06320), you will see a list of vaccination locations and the type of vaccine that is being given at the particular site. Note that if you are making an appointment online, you will need to create an account within each provider’s system.
- You can also schedule an appointment by phone by calling 877-918-2224 (8 a.m.–8 p.m., 7 days a week).
- When selecting a site to be vaccinated remember that if you are 16 or 17, you are only eligible for the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. If you are 18 and older, you are eligible for Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer-BioNTech, or Moderna.
The amount of vaccine available is controlled by the State of Connecticut, not Connecticut College or Hartford HealthCare. The availability of the vaccine will continue to dictate how many people will be able to schedule appointments for vaccination in the coming weeks. The Connecticut Department of Public Health expects that, by early May, supply will begin to exceed demand, and appointments will be more readily available.
If you have questions about the vaccines, please visit the Connecticut COVID-19 Vaccination FAQs or review Hartford HealthCare’s COVID-19 Vaccination FAQs. You may watch this brief video on the importance of getting vaccinated.
As a reminder, students are encouraged to get the COVID-19 vaccine but are not required to do so. If you have concerns about whether you should get the vaccine, you should reach out to our medical providers in Student Health Services or your personal medical provider.
Please keep in mind that the vaccine does not reach its full strength until two weeks after the second dose of the Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine and two weeks after the single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. In addition, it is possible that vaccinated persons may still transmit the virus to others. It is therefore important that you continue to follow the Camels Care Pledge and related guidelines for the remainder of the semester. Everyone must continue to wear a mask, maintain social distance (six feet inside and three feet outside), report your symptoms, complete your twice-weekly tests and wash your hands often to keep both you and our community healthy and safe.
