Wait List

The City of Norwalk now has a waiting list for residents who are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. In the instance a Norwalk Health Department vaccination clinic has extra doses or appointments available due to cancelations or no-shows, residents will be called at random to fill open appointment slots. This is not an appointment request, and submitting information does not guarantee someone will be contacted to receive a vaccine. You must be eligible at the time of vaccination to receive a vaccine through this wait list. Complete the form at norwalkct.org/waitlist. Residents should not sign up on this list if they have already been vaccinated, as this will not be used for any second dose vaccines. The Wait List will be cleared every Monday morning. 

Who's Eligible? 

All Connecticut residents, workers, and students ages 12 and older are now eligible. Please note that Pfizer is the only vaccine currently authorized for individuals ages 12 - 17, so individuals in that age group must find a provider who offers Pfizer. For more information about eligibility, visit: https://portal.ct.gov/vaccine-portal/COVID-19-Vaccination-Phases.

I am Eligible. How do I get the Vaccine?

Eligible individuals have many options for scheduling an appointment to get a vaccine. Click HERE for instructions in English, Spanish, and Haitian Creole on how to schedule appointments.

  • a list of vaccine providers near you
  • how to schedule an appointment with each provider
