1/11/2021 - COVID-19 VACCINE UPDATE - Phase 1a and 1b (1.20 Update)

Vaccine Information: Fairfield's Health Department has been operating a vaccine clinic for the last four weeks but we are limited to provide vaccinations only to those eligible, authorized by the State of Connecticut, and registered in the federal VAMS system.

At this time those eligible for COVID-19 vaccinations include all Phase 1a individuals and those Phase 1b individuals who are 75 years of age and older.

Phase 1a individuals include:
* Healthcare Personnel: all paid and unpaid persons serving in healthcare settings who have potential for direct or indirect exposure to patients or 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.

Phase 1b individuals eligible at this time include:
*Those who are 75 years old and older. Proof of age will be required at the clinic.

The tiered approach to Phase 1b is as follows:

*Scheduling now: Individuals over the age of 75
*Scheduling next (likely early February): Individuals between the ages of 65 and 74
*Scheduling soon (likely late February or early March): Frontline essential workers and individuals with underlying medical conditions who have an increased risk for severe illness

If you fall under Phase 1a, you should register through your employer. For those in the Phase 1B category of 75 and older, you must complete the State form below:




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.

The Department of Public Health sent a communication to all school districts, local health departments, and vaccine providers requesting that anyone who has an appointment for Friday of this week or later cancel these appointments unless they are over the age of 75 or if they were eligible to receive vaccine as part of Phase 1a. Similarly, vaccine providers with clinics scheduled past this Thursday that are not devoted to individuals 75 and over or eligible in Phase 1a are being asked to cancel those clinics.  This is being done in order to ensure that Connecticut’s focus on individuals over the age of 75 is maintained.

As of January 21, the following data represents the total number of COVID-19 vaccinations administered in Connecticut, as reported to the state:

  • First doses administered: 226,930
  • Second doses administered: 31,337
  • Total doses administered: 258,267

 The Town will continue to post the latest information on the Town website, and the social media pages for the Health Department, the Town of Fairfield and the First Selectwoman's office. For a full listing of those social media pages,click here
