Connecticut opens vaccinations to individuals ages 16+.

As of April 1, 2021, everybody ages 16+ who lives, works, or goes to school in Connecticut is eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Being vaccinated helps build “community immunity,” which stops the spread of the disease.

What does that mean for you? 

It means protecting those around you AND getting back safely to doing the fun stuff – like traveling to new destinations and hearing live music at concerts or cheering for your favorite sports teams in stadiums and arenas.

Here are the vaccine facts.

Fast-paced and engaging, the evening’s offerings will range from the love songs of Camelot and Oliver! to the comedic shenanigans of Annie Get Your Gun, My Fair Lady and Gilbert and Sullivan’s operettas. Cap it all off with the stunning choral writing of Rodgers and Hammerstein and you have an event guaranteed to please!

Dr. Yaneer Bar-Yam, president of New England Complex Systems Institute, presents to BU321: Human Resource Management

Dr. Yaneer Bar-Yam, president of New England Complex Systems Institute and leader of endcoronavirus.org, a volunteer coalition formed to develop solutions to eliminate COVID-19, Zoomed with Irving Steel’s BU321: Human Resource Management class at Mitchell College recently. 

After the class, student Christina Corbeil commented: “In Dr. Bar-Yam’s words, ‘no one person can change what society does, but we can all work together to solve the pandemic.’ That means that it is our job to follow the guidelines and if we do that it can lower the rate of COVID-19 cases…wear a mask…stay 6 feet apart, wash hands, and sanitize when going out in public.”

Words of wisdom, all around!
