Long-Term Care Facilities

Work through existing state and federal partnerships with pharmacies.

Healthcare workers, Medical First Responders, Frontline Essential Workers

Your employer will submit your information into the CDC Vaccine Administration Management System (VAMS) system, and you will receive an email from the VAMS. You can find basic step-by-step instructions for using the VAMS system here.

If you believe you are eligible, but you haven’t received an email from the VAMS system, contact your employer.

If you are an Employer/Organization with eligible employees:

Individuals Ages 75 and Older

You can fill out the State’s online form ( to register with the CDC Vaccine Administration Management System (VAMS).

You will need to enter your full name, date of birth, zip code, occupation (including “retired”), and email address on this form. Once registered, you will receive an email from VAMS with a link to set up an account and make an appointment to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. You can find basic step-by-step instructions for using the VAMS system here.

Please note: This form is optional and is only for registering with the Vaccine Administration Management System (VAMS). You do not need to fill out this form and register with VAMS if you have other options for getting the vaccine (for example, if you get it through your current medical provider).

VAMS is a federal registration system and will show available appointments for eligible residents across the state. Norwalk residents who are eligible may sign up for any open slot in Connecticut. The Norwalk Health Department, Norwalk Hospital, and community health care providers are distributing vaccines. These provider’s appointment slots will appear in VAMS. As more vaccine is received from the State, additional appointments will be made available. 

Phone Access

Those without internet access can call Connecticut’s COVID Vaccine Appointment Assistance Line at 877-918-2224. The phone system was created in partnership with the Department of Public Health and United Way of Connecticut and is specifically targeted to provide support for eligible vaccine recipients who have limited technology access, or who have language, disability, or other barriers that could prevent them from using existing self-scheduling options successfully.

The line will take calls on Mondays through Fridays from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
