Subject: COVID-19 Vaccine Rollout

Dear colleagues,

I hope this finds you all well. Many of you are likely wondering about the COVID-19 vaccine rollout in Connecticut and our plans for the Wesleyan community. We are strongly encouraging all our employees to be vaccinated, and are following state guidelines regarding eligibility for vaccinations.

Currently, Connecticut is in Phase 1b of the vaccine rollout, in which those age 75 and older are eligible to receive the vaccine. Employees who fall into this category can find information about scheduling an appointment for their vaccine on the state’s website or eligible employees may contact the Middletown Senior Center for information about its vaccination clinics at (860) 638-4549 or seniorvaccine@middletownct.gov.

The state has posted an approximate timeline for the vaccine rollout, which indicates that residents between the ages of 65 and 74 will be in the next group to be vaccinated, likely beginning in February.

As more information becomes available, we will keep you informed.


Tom McLarney, MD
