Welcome to the Town of Ellington

COVID-19 Testing, Vaccines, and Other Resources

Eligible groups for the COVID-19 vaccine currently include healthcare personnel, medical first responders, long-term care facility residents, residents/staff of select congregate settings, and individuals aged 45 and older. 

Click here for information from the State on phases and eligibility, as well as to access the Vaccine Administration Management System (VAMS).

We encourage individuals to follow the CT Department of Health's response framework found here; guidance includes avoiding larger events, limiting time with non-family members, limiting group sizes, and postponing indoor activities where mask wearing or social distancing cannot be maintained. Connecticut is currently in Phase 2.1 of its reopening plans; more information on those guidelines can be found here.

The Connecticut Department of Public Health (DPH) has launched a weekly, color-coded COVID-19 alert system for every city and town in the state, showing the average daily case rate per 100,000 population for the last two weeks. The new weekly alert level is also accompanied by municipal-level guidance on recommended actions for individual residents, institutions such as schools, houses of worship and community organizations,  plus municipal leaders and local health directors.
