COVID-19 Vaccines Update from Nuvance Health

Posted: 1/21/2021

Nuvance Health knows there is excitement about COVID-19 vaccines, and those who want one are wondering when and how to schedule an appointment. Nuvance Health is prepared to offer vaccines to our patients based on federal and state distribution phases and supply of vaccines.

At this time, residents of Connecticut who are in Phase 1a and 1b are eligible for a vaccine. We are not scheduling appointments or creating wait lists for those who are not eligible. We will let our patients know when we are able to offer vaccines to them. Please help us by not contacting our hospitals or medical practices to ask about vaccines.

Determine if you are eligible for a vaccine by visiting ct.gov/covidvaccine/access and then follow the steps to schedule an appointment. Nuvance Health is using the CDC system the State of Connecticut selected for vaccine management called Vaccine Administration Management System (VAMS). You cannot schedule an appointment directly at Nuvance Health. Nuvance Health locations will be listed in VAMS and available for those who schedule an appointment.

We care deeply about our patients and communities and know based on the science that vaccines can help end this pandemic. We intend to get vaccines to everyone who wants them as quickly as possible. However, vaccines are in very limited supply according to federal government allotments to each state. Whether you are eligible now or not, please be patient and flexible as we all navigate the complexities of vaccines allocation and distribution.

Stay informed, get prepared

The best source of information is the State of Connecticut’s website because they are managing vaccines allocation and distribution. If you are eligible for a vaccine and need assistance scheduling an appointment, you can also call the Connecticut COVID-19 Vaccine Appointment Assist Line at 1-877-918-2224 from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
