Connecticut could face a crossroads in its battle with COVID-19. 

On one hand, healthcare workers are expected to get vaccinated over the next month-and-a-half.  But shots for elderly people and patients with underlying medical problems will not begin until January, and people who are not in a high-risk or critical group are expected to have to wait until June. 

In the meantime, can Connecticut prevent the virus from spiraling out of control over the holidays?
