Connecticut allows immunocompromised to get third dose of COVID-19 vaccine
Gov. Ned Lamont announced Saturday that the state is working with COVID-19 vaccine clinics on the rollout for third doses.
This week, federal health officials approved another dose for people with certain health conditions.
State health officials say this applies to a small group of people. They say they don't expect these booster shots will have a drastic affect on the state's vaccine supply.
You don't need to provide any prescriptions or provider referral to get a third dose. Anyone who is immunocompromised can walk into any clinic and get their shot.
