Priority 1A

With the first shipments of the COVID-19 vaccine expected to arrive in our state shortly, two announcements from the Connecticut State Health Department today.

The first affirming the EMS responders are considered priority 1A in receiving the vaccine.

The second empowering paramedics and EMTs with training in IM administration (epinephrine) to be able to administer the COVID-19 vaccine.

Great news for our safety and deserved recognition for the work we do and our capabilities to assist the public health infrastructure in fighting the pandemic!

I will get my vaccine at the first available opportunity.
