Redding Update
1.15.21

Redding now has a COVID-19 vaccination program pre-registration located on the Town website: www.townofreddingct.org.  Redding residents 65 and older ONLY may pre-register at this time.  Information gathered through the pre-registration process will be used to schedule vaccines by email.  Go to the Town website and click on “Vaccine Pre-Registration Age 65+” to sign up. Those age 75 and up will be prioritized for vaccination.  When it’s time to schedule an appointment an email from CDC VAMS will be received to set a time and preferred vaccination site location. (also see “online” below)

We’re asking Redding Residents in the 65-74 group to pre-register so that we can expedite the process of contacting you when the 75+ population has been vaccinated.

Those who are 75 and up and who do not have internet access can call the Redding Human Services Department at 203-938-9725 to register.

Redding will be operating COVID-19 vaccination clinics at the Redding Community Center. Appointments are required. There is no walk-in service. Our greatest limitation has to do with supply chain matters, which are largely out of our control. All clinic operations are dependent on vaccine supply.

Other Vaccination Options

Anyone can attend any open COVID clinic that allows you to do so.  It is not required to attend clinics in your home town.

Online: A form can be accessed online for those age 75+ at https://dphsubmissions.ct.gov/OnlineVaccine that allows individuals to schedule an appointment through the web-based Vaccine Administration Management System (VAMS).

Telephone: Those without internet access can call the Connecticut’s COVID Vaccine Appointment Assistance line at 877-918-2224 Monday through Friday 8am – 4:30pm. It will offer a call-back option when all contact specialists are busy serving other callers. This is specifically targeted to provide support for eligible vaccine recipients who have limited technology access.

A Challenging Process Requiring Patience

The Governor said “We know many people are excited to receive the vaccine and the promise of the future that comes with it, but we are limited in our ability to distribute them purely based on the amount we receive from the federal government. We are hopeful we will see increased allocations in the coming weeks and months which will lead to even more light at the end of the tunnel.”
