Beginning Thursday, April 1st, all Connecticut residents 16 and up will be eligible to schedule an appointment to get the Covid-19 vaccine. There are several options to accomplish this:
- Call the Vaccine Appointment Assist Line (VAAL) at 877-918-2224. They are taking calls 8am - 8pm seven days a week.
- Check for appointments in VAMS. In order to use VAMS you must first register, which is a two-step process. Go to dphsubmissions.ct.gov, complete and submit form. Within 12 hours you will receive an email from the CDC/VAMS to complete your registration (check your SPAM folder too) and create your VAMS account.
- CVS, Walgreens and Rite Aid have all been approved to administer the Covid-19 vaccine. Check their websites for info on locations and how to schedule an appointment.
- Go to vaccinefinder.org, check the vaccine(s) you are looking for, type in your zip code, expand search to 50 miles. Search results will show sites offering vaccine and whether vaccine is in stock or out of stock.
- Call the local Health Districts in our area to see if they have any vaccine clinic appointments available. They are Pomperaug Health District @ 203-264-9616, Newtown Health District @ 203-270-4291, Brookfield Health Department @ 203-775-7315, New Milford Health Department @ 860-355-6035, and Torrington Health District @ 860-489-0436.
- You can call 211 for assistance with this process.
Should you have any questions about the above, call Jerrilynn at 860-210-0201.
Call Connecticut’s COVID Vaccine Appointment Assistance Line at (877) 918-2224. The phone system was created in partnership with the Department of Public Health and United Way of Connecticut and is specifically targeted to provide support for eligible vaccine recipients who have limited technology access, or who have language, disability, or other barriers that could prevent them from using existing self-scheduling options successfully. The line will take calls on Mondays through Fridays from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and will offer a call-back option when all contact specialists are busy serving other callers. The team will aim to return calls as soon as possible, with the goal of same-day response.

Tax Collector - January 2021
The Town of Roxbury will be participating in the tax deferment program outlined in the Governor’s Executive Order 9R. Non-escrowed Real Estate, Personal Property and Supplemental Motor Vehicle tax bills due on January, 1, 2021 will have a three-month extended period, making the last day to pay without penalty, April 1, 2021.
Taxes remaining unpaid after April 1, 2021 will be subject to interest of 1.5% per month from the due date of January 1, 2021. Real Estate taxes paid by escrow are not eligible for the deferment. Also, the deferment does not apply to already existing past due taxes.
Per section 12-130 of the Connecticut General Statutes, failure to receive a bill does not invalidate the tax or any penalties accrued.
The Tax Collector’s office is closed to the public, but you may call ahead to pay in person. Tax payers are encouraged to pay by mail or online at www.roxburyct.com, or drop payments in the drop box outside of the main entrance to Town Hall.

4-CT was recently created to help social service providers in the state provide crucial services to those most in need in the wake of the COVID-19 impact. This is particularly important to First Responders and their families, who are all on the front lines helping protect and serve all of the citizens of your cities and towns. From the 4-CT website:
We’re working together with the Community Foundations of the State of Connecticut to get funds into the hands of those who need help the most: childcare for first responders, food banks, and more; those already in need before this crisis began. 40% of Americans cannot come up with $400 in a crisis. COVID-19 IS THAT CRISIS.
We're an independent non-profit entity, staffed mostly by volunteers, that enables actionable, fundable projects in order to give the community a powerful new way to help support our state’s COVID-19 response.
Thank you for your understanding and patience. There is a lot of unnecessary angst but with the above-mentioned actions, we’re hoping to alleviate that for some.
This office, along with the Board of Selectmen, our Emergency Management Director, Director of Health, Police and Emergency Services have and will continue to communicate through this situation. We have your best interests at heart.
We have elections and budget referendums on the horizon and information on those events will be forthcoming.
