Governor Lamont marks one year of vaccination against COVID-19 but emphasizes that there is still work to be done

(HARTFORD, CT) – Governor Ned Lamont today marked the first anniversary of the introduction of the COVID-19 vaccine by thanking the thousands of dedicated healthcare professionals across Connecticut.

State of Connecticut administered his first doses of the COVID-19 vaccine at Hartford Hospital a year ago today on December 14, 2020. Since then, more than 5.8 million doses of the vaccine have been administered.

“I thank all the workers in our local health services, federally qualified health centers, pharmacies and health systems who were instrumental in the deployment of our COVID-19 vaccine”, Governor Lamont said. “Thanks to all of these dedicated people, Connecticut continues to have one of the best immunization rates in the country. But we still have some work to do, and I can’t stress enough that due to the drop in immunity and the Omicron variant, there’s no better time to get a booster than Before the holidays.

Recent estimates have shown that COVID-19 vaccines have prevented hundreds of thousands of hospitalizations and deaths in Connecticut. In addition, preliminary data shows that the booster doses are effective in increasing protection against the Omicron variant.

“Amid high demand for recalls, many Connecticut residents are finding that their neighborhood pharmacy, primary care provider, or health care system may not have booster doses available at appropriate times.” Governor Lamont said. “We want people to know that we have dozens of pop-up clinics going on every day and no appointments are necessary for these clinics.”
