Danbury Health Department Increases Outreach to Seniors without Email Access


Danbury, CT - The City of Danbury Department of Health and Human Services is actively vaccinating area residents 75+ at the Danbury Health Department Clinic.

In an effort to support Danbury residents 75+ who have had technological challenges with the Vaccine Administration Management System (VAMS), including those who do not have access to the internet/email, the Health Department is calling residents directly to schedule appointments at the Danbury Health Department Clinic.

If you know an eligible individual aged 75+ who cannot access email or the VAMS system, please assist them in filling out this form (Spanish & Portuguese translations are included within the form):

Eligible individuals will receive a call from the Danbury Health Department to schedule their appointment over the phone.

The Danbury Health Department Clinic is open by appointment only for eligible individuals in 1a and 1b (75+ only). The clinic is only administering the Moderna vaccine. Eligible individuals with internet access and email addresses should book their appointments through VAMS if possible.

Residents 75+ can also schedule over the phone by calling the CT COVID Vaccine Appointment Assist Line at 877-918-2224. The Vaccine Appointment Assist Line is available seven days a week from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Residents who call the CT COVID Vaccine Line can ask to schedule their appointment at the Danbury Health Department Clinic.
