75 or older

Beginning today, eligible residents over the age of 75 will be contacted by their healthcare provider to schedule an appointment to receive a COVID vaccine.  Residents are urged not to contact their physician or healthcare provider directly for COVID vaccine appointments.

Appointments can be scheduled using one of the options below:


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 on Mondays through Fridays from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. 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.

Email:  Send an email requesting a COVID vaccination to the East Shore District Health Department at include your name, age, phone number, address and email address.

Please share this information with your elderly relatives, friends and neighbors that may not have computer access.
