The Pomperaug District Department of Health (PDDH) is providing COVID-19 vaccinations according to Connecticut’s designated vaccination phases. The current Phase1b group is people who are 75 years or older. Additionally we will vaccinate healthcare workers and first responders who are eligible in Phase 1a. We are using the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine.

As of 1/14/2021, PDDH is still providing vaccinations for Phase 1a which is for healthcare workers and first responders.

To be vaccinated you must:

  1. Be in one of the current vaccination priority groups.
  2. Schedule an appointment with a link that is provided below.
  3. After you schedule your appointment, check your email for an appointment confirmation and/or reminder. Those emails will contain links to the forms you need. Those forms are also in the Download section on this page.
  4. Read the fact sheet for the Emergency Use Authorization for the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine.
  5. Complete the Consent Form and bring it to the clinic. It is also provided in the Download section on this page.
  6. Bring a copy of your insurance card. We can bill insurance for the administration cost of the vaccine.
  7. Arrive at the clinic for your appointed time. Plan on at least 30-45 minutes at the clinic. There will be a 15-minute waiting time after you receive your vaccine for precautionary observation.
  8. You must schedule an appointment for a second dose at the time of your first vaccination. The second dose should be given 28 days after the first dose. Every effort should be made to obtain your second dose from the same organization that provided your first dose. Our clinics are carefully coordinated to match the 28 day requirement and to minimize vaccine wastage.
