Hartford HealthCare is providing some of its hospitals with the vaccine to administer to eligible individuals who wish to be vaccinated.

Individuals who go to one of Hartford HealthCare's hospitals seeking care will now be offered the coronavirus vaccine, officials said. If patients wish to get vaccinated and their condition allows, they can get the vaccine before being discharged.

The healthcare system will administer the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

“This is another effort to ensure that no person falls through the cracks. That we are protecting the health and well-being to all people whose care we are entrusted with,” said Jeff Flaks, president and CEO of Hartford HealthCare. “We are making tremendous progress.”
