Where to Get a COVID-19 Booster Shot in Connecticut

NBC Universal, Inc.

COVID-19 booster shots are now available in Connecticut, but there might be a wait before you can get an appointment for one.   

Booster shots are available for anyone 18 and older who received a Johnson & Johnson coronavirus vaccine at least two months ago and anyone who received the Pfizer or Moderna shots at least six months ago.

Healthcare providers, vaccine clinics and participating pharmacies are offering boosters. While you might be eligible, you might not be able to get a booster until after Thanksgiving.

  • On the arm where you got the shot:
    • Pain
    • Redness
    • Swelling
  • Throughout the rest of your body:
    • Tiredness
    • Headache
    • Muscle pain
    • Chills
