COVID-19 Vaccine

Find a COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic HERE

March 29, 2022 - The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention updated its recommendations to allow a second booster dose of either the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccines for older people and certain immunocompromised individuals. More information about booster dose recommendations is available HERE.

This now makes a second booster dose of these vaccines available to other populations at higher risk for severe disease, hospitalization and death. During the recent Omicron surge, those who were boosted were 21 times less likely to die from COVID-19 compared to those who were unvaccinated, and seven times less likely to be hospitalized. Individuals who are eligible for this booster are encouraged to visit ct.gov/covidvaccine to locate a site near them. Nearly 800 locations are available to administer boosters with more than adequate supply of vaccine available.

Vector-Borne Diseases

Vectors are living organisms that can transmit infectious diseases between humans or from animals to humans. Many of these vectors are bloodsucking insects, which ingest disease-producing microorganisms during a blood meal from an infected host (human or animal) and later inject it into a new host during their subsequent blood meal.
