The state of Connecticut has a deadline of Friday, Oct 16 to submit a draft coronavirus vaccination plan to federal healthcare officials. It is expected that the number of doses will be limited when a vaccine first goes into production, so state officials will likely have to decide which groups of people get inoculated first. State Department of Public Health acting commissioner Deidre Gifford says her agency is working with limited information, because vaccine development is still ongoing. A committee that will advise state officials on how to make those decisions held its first meeting last night.
