Health officials in Connecticut say they're happy with the state's rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine so far, especially compared to the rest of the U.S.
About 55,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccine from Moderna and Pfizer have been injected so far. Nationally, less than 3 million Americans have been vaccinated as state agencies struggle to store and administer shots.
Local hospitals say Connecticut's good results so far are especially positive, given reports of botched rollouts in other parts of the country - but that the state isn't out of the woods yet.
Health officials say it's important to make sure as more doses arrive, residents are ready to receive them. They say until we've reached herd immunity, masks and social distancing will remain a must.
