COVID Vaccination Appointment Phone Service Extended

A Connecticut COVID-19 shot appointment phone service is extending its hours. Starting Monday, the Vaccine Appointment Assist Line will be available from 8 am to 8 pm, seven days per week. It is run by the state Department of Public Health and the United Way of Connecticut. Officials say the extra hours will be needed in the coming weeks as Connecticut begins to receive more vaccine supply, and as eligibility for the shots is opened up to include everyone over the age of 65. The phone number for vaccination scheduling is: 877-918-2224. Appointments can also be scheduled online.
