HARTFORD, CT - December 14, 2020: Hartford Healthcare workers receive the Pfizer BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine following a press conference at Hartford Hospital announcing the vaccine’s arrival in Connecticut earlier that morning. ";

What will you do once you’re vaccinated? The CDC says people who’ve been vaccinated can gather together.  And grandparents who got the shots can visit with grandchildren.

Connecticut residents may soon be able to return to some type of “normal” now that Gov Lamont has just announced all residents over 16 are eligible for the vaccine starting April 5th, 2021.

We want to hear from you. How will these latest guidelines affect your interactions with relatives/friends?

GUESTS:

  • Helena Rogers - New Haven resident
  • Carolyn Jackson - Hamden resident
  • Dr. Carlos del Rio - Distinguished Professor of Medicine in the Division of Infectious Diseases at Emory University School of Medicine, and Professor of Global Health in the Department of Global Health and Professor of Epidemiology at the Rollins School of Public Health
