Agency on Aging of South Central CT Offers “Vaccine Buddies” Program

VACCINE BUDDIES

Offering virtual support to individuals who are unable to complete the Covid Vaccine application process independently.

A collaboration between the Agency on Aging’s Volunteers and Volunteers from Interfaith Volunteer Caregivers.

We understand that many of our local seniors and adults with disabilities are challenged by the process of making a vaccine appointment due to lack of online/Wi-Fi or telephone capabilities, physical challenges, and language barriers.  Referred clients must be willing to provide all essential information necessary for completion of the vaccine appointment.  We will follow the distribution guidelines established by the Governor Lamont.

 •         March 19, 2021: Scheduling opens to ages 45 to 54

•          April 5, 2021 (tentative): Scheduling opens to ages 16 to 44

Vetted and trained volunteers will assist with online and/or telephone appointment registration.

Transportation assistance is available.

Please contact the Aging on Aging’s office to register for assistance.
