COVID-19 Vaccination Information
Below is information from the New Canaan Director of Human Services, Bethany Zaro, RN, MPH, about registering for the COVID-19 vaccine using the Vaccine Administration Management System (VAMS).
NOTICE FROM NEW CANAAN HUMAN SERVICES
REGARDING COVID VACCINE APPOINTMENTS FOR SENIORS
New Canaan has posted information regarding the COVID Vaccine Schedule. You will be allowed access to the Vaccine Administration Management System (VAMS) by “clicking here”. This will take you to the following link: Online VAMS Enrollment (ct.gov) which allows you to begin the registration process to receive the vaccine.
When asked your occupation, click on the first choice “I am eligible because I am 75 or older.” It could change to 65 or older at any time!!
After you register, you are told to wait for 2 confirmation emails. It may take more than 24 hours. The emails will come at different times. One is the password to successfully get onto the link, which is in the other email. Make sure you check your spam or junk mail to see if it has gone into there!
Once registered, you will then be able to choose an appointment time and place. Click on the location and then scroll down and click on “NEXT.” Appointments may be made outside of New Canaan but understand the vaccine supply is not as large as the demand. As a result, appointment times may have to be made at later dates than desired. Keep clicking on dates until you are given time slots. Many people are having to go into February. Also, as more vaccine becomes available, more appointments will open up so keep looking on a daily basis if you are having difficulty finding a vaccine administration site where there are openings.

Hiking with Liz
Help maintain your sanity in these tough times of COVID by enjoying an outdoor activity which is relatively safe, healthy and gets you out in the fresh air. The hiking group is meeting every other Friday to hike in local preserves, natural areas and forests, wearing masks and socially distancing. We meet at around 9:30 at the trailhead and hike between 2-3 hours, usually 3-5 miles.
