Connecticut became the first state in the nation on Friday to vaccinate all nursing home residents in the state with the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, according to Gov. Ned Lamont.

The governor spoke outside LiveWell, a long-term care facility in Southington, on Friday afternoon.

LiveWell was the last facility in the state to receive its vaccinations. Lamont said it wasn't clear why LiveWell was the last.

A spokesperson for LiveWell said 100% of its residents have received the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. About 80-85% of the staff have received the shot, the spokesperson said.
