VAMS - How to Schedule an Online Appointment Using the Vaccine Administration Management System

VAMS is an online scheduling tool that allows people to search for a COVID-19 vaccine clinic near them. Once you have VAMS account, you can search for clinics in Connecticut, including ones being held locally at NDDH.

Note - Although VAMS will invite you to book an appointment for ages 5-11 and booster doses, NDDH is unable to accept VAMS appointments at this time for these specific groups. Currently, here is how to get a spot at one of our clinics:

  • 1st and 2nd doses for ages 12+: walk-ins accepted or by appointment scheduled in VAMS
  • 1st and 2nd doses for ages 5 - 11: walk-ins only (No appointments scheduled in VAMS at this time)
  • Booster shots for all three vaccines: walk-ins only (No appointments scheduled in VAMS at this time)

Get a copy of your immunization record

Get your immunization record through the secure CT WiZ Public Portal, a free service provided by the Connecticut Department of Public Health Immunization Program. Patients and legal guardians can access official immunization records for themselves and their children using the CT WiZ Public Portal.

If you wish to obtain a replacement CDC Vaccine Card, please contact your provider; only they can reissue the cards and have been given guidance from the CT DPH to reissue them upon request of recipients.

Alternatively, you may download your own record from the CT WiZ Public Portal found here: https://ctwiz.dph.ct.gov/ctwiz_public/Application/PublicPortal.

Important: If you are currently unable to access your record in the Public Portal, it is likely because it validates the information you enter against the information that was entered by your provider; if it doesn't match exactly it will not provide the results you seek and you will need to fill out the following form to update your Portal profile details: https://dphsubmissions.ct.gov/ImmunizationUpdate. Once your form has been completed your profile will be updated so that you may access your record through the Public Portal.

About the COVID-19 Vaccines & Vaccination

Currently, three vaccines are authorized and recommended to prevent COVID-19:

  • ​​​​Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine - For ages 5 and older. 2 doses required at least 21 days apart. Read the fact sheet.

    Pfizer-BioNTech (COMIRNATY) Name Change

    Pfizer-BioNTech (COMIRNATY) received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval on August 23, 2021, for individuals 16 years of age and older. Once vaccines are approved by the FDA, companies can market the vaccines under brand names. COMIRNATY is the brand name for the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine. Now that the FDA-authorized Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine has been approved by the FDA for individuals 16 years of age and older, it will be marketed as COMIRNATY. The use of the name Pfizer-BioNTech will still be used for individuals 12-15 years old since this age group has not been approved. There has been no change in the formulation of the vaccine since the name change.

  • Moderna’s COVID-19 Vaccine - For ages 18 and older. 2 doses required at least 28 days apart. Read the fact sheet.
  • Johnson & Johnson Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine - For ages 18 and older. 1 dose only. Read the fact sheet.
  • Masks are required and all persons are screened upon entry at vaccination sites
  • Bring a form of photo identification to your appointment
  • Wear a short-sleeve shirt under your clothing for ease of vaccination
  • Anyone receiving a COVID-19 vaccine will be monitored for at least 15 minutes
