Connecticut health officials have fined more than 100 long-term care facilities for failure to meet the state’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate.

Governor Ned Lamont’s executive order required all employees at nursing homes and other healthcare facilities to receive the vaccine by September 28.  

As of last week, data shows nearly 16% of the facilities in the state have failed to report full compliance with the mandate.

The state Department of Public Health has so far handed out nearly $20 million in fines to facilities for vaccine violations.
