LYME/OLD LYME — UPDATED JAN. 15 (see text in red below): On Thursday, Jan. 14, the State of Connecticut opened COVID-19 vaccine eligibility to individuals aged 75 and older.

Individuals aged 75 and older who wish to be vaccinated can register for a vaccination through a number of channels:

Old Lyme Emergency Services Director David Roberge contacted us this morning to emphasize that the easiest way for people aged 75 and over is to register for the vaccine via the LLHD website. Anyone registering this way should then expect to receive two emails after registering, one from the Connecticut Department of Health and the second from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). 

Roberge also stressed that people in this age group, who do not have access to a computer, should use the phone number given above to register.

He added that relatives, friends and neighbors of persons aged 75 and over could be very helpful in checking that the person [aged 75 and over] has successfully registered for the vaccine by any method.

In addition to these methods, some individuals may be contacted by their healthcare provider to schedule a vaccination, if their provider is participating in the vaccination program. 

All vaccinations are offered by appointment; people must first register through one of the systems listed above to secure an appointment. Vaccine supply remains limited and patience is requested. 

Although the availability of vaccine will help reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with COVID-19 long term, it is only one of the tools that we have in our toolbox to fight this pandemic; it is an imperative that everyone remain diligent and continue to practice social distancing and appropriate mask protocols.

Ledge Light Health District (LLHD) is committed to assuring that all individuals have access to vaccinations as they become eligible, and as vaccine is available.

While LLHD is one of the vaccination providers, LLHD does not make decisions about who is eligible for vaccinations. Ledge Light Health District staff are monitoring information regarding vaccine eligibility as it is released by the State of Connecticut.

The State has indicated that certain frontline essential workers as well as individuals between the ages of 65 and 74 and those individuals ages 16 to 64 who have underlying health conditions that put them at greater risk will become eligible in the coming weeks.

Visit the LLHD’s website and social media pages frequently for up-to-date information.
