State To Open Vaccine Registration To 65-And-Over

Gov. Ned Lamont says Connecticut residents 65 and above can now start getting vaccinated if their provider has extra doses of the COVID-19 shot. The state plans to open up registration to those 65 and older officially on Thursday.

"The 75 and above and 65 and above -- by far the most vulnerable," he said Monday. "If you really want to deal with fatalities, if you want to deal with hospitalizations it makes the most sense. People 65 and over, sadly are more likely to have comorbidities. So it makes sense on a whole bunch of different fronts."

Lamont -- who is 67 -- says he will most likely receive the vaccine next week.
