Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont says the state will take a “tiered” approach to distributing COVID-19 vaccines to people in Phase 1B in the coming weeks. Speaking to reporters Tuesday, Lamont says people between the age of 65 and 74 will likely be able to schedule an appointment to get the shot in early February. “Right now it looks like we’re going to be able to open the lens and allow people 65 and above probably in a couple of weeks,” Lamont said. “We’ll give you a clearer indication on that in the next 10 days.” People 75 and older can schedule an appointment online or by phone to get the shot now. The Governor says frontline “essential workers” and people with underlying medical conditions should be eligible to get the shot in late February or early March.
