BREAKING: @GovNedLamont is changing CT's covid vaccination plan.

The new plan will be based solely on age, with one exception: teachers.

Beginning March 1, teachers and residents aged 55+ will be eligible.

Full story from me and @AlexPutterman:…
This move bucks the guidance of the CDC and CT's vaccine advisory group, both of which recommended prioritizing residents based on risk.

While still prioritizing teachers, Lamont is snubbing many others (grocery store workers, restaurant servers, everyone w/comorbidities).
Last week, Lamont said everything was on track to expand to frontline essential workers and those w/comorbidities.

“All the essential workers will have the doors open to them...within 10 days, two weeks,” Lamont said Thursday.

We expect to hear more at today's 4pm briefing.
