New order to require booster shots for nursing home workers

Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont is ordering nursing home workers and contractors who have significant contact with residents to get a vaccine booster shot by Feb. 11. The Democrat noted Thursday the state's increasing COVID-19 infection rate among staff. The two executive orders signed by Lamont also apply to staff at other long-term care facilities. That includes assisted living and residential care homes and the 3,600 state employees at state-run chronic care hospitals. Meanwhile, the Connecticut Hospital Association announced it's amending its statewide mandatory vaccination policy for hospital and health system workers and clinical staff to require booster shots.
