The Fairfield Health Department has started to vaccinate eligible Phase 1a individuals for COVID-19. These individuals should work through their employers to access the Vaccine Administration Management System (VAMS) to enable registration for vaccination. At this time, only Phase 1a individuals are eligible for the COVID vaccine at this time. These individuals are:
* Healthcare Personnel: all paid and unpaid persons serving in healthcare settings who have potential for direct or indirect exposure to patients of infectious materials.
* Long Term Care Facility Residents: adults who reside in facilities that provide a range of services, including medical and personal care, to persons who are unable to live independently.
* First Responders at risk of exposure to COVID-19 through their responses to medical emergencies such as Emergency Medical Technicians, Police, and Fire.
