Governor Lamont announced on Monday that advanced registration for COVID vaccinations for residents age 75 and above will begin this coming Thursday, January 14, 2021. There will be several ways to register:
A phone number will also be available on the same website
With your medical provider. Some doctors and hospitals will be contacting their patients and making appointments for vaccinations.
Killingworth town staff will also be contacting many of our 600 residents in the 75+ age group to assist them in registering. The Town’s Health Department web page
will continue to be updated.
Please remember that there will be a limited supply of vaccine coming into the state, so you may not get an appointment right away, but you will be able to get one scheduled.
Vaccination clinics are set up throughout the state. When you register, you will probably get to choose an appointment at a clinic in our area.
Beware of scams. COVID-19 vaccinations are free. A legitimate call to sign you up for an appointment will never ask you for payment, a credit card number, or your social security number.
Stay safe and carry on.
