BLOOMFIELD, Conn. (WTNH) — Governor Ned Lamont got his first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine Tuesday morning in Bloomfield.
He received the Pfizer vaccine at a clinic that was held at the First Cathedral Church, organized by Trinity Health of New England.
The governor became eligible for the vaccine when Phase 1B was expanded to include Connecticut residents ages 65 and older. Lamont is 67.
Before getting his shot, he joked that his wife, Annie, was jealous she still had to wait.
He said there was nothing to be afraid of, adding that he felt better already.
