The Waterbury Health Department is here for you, Waterbury!
Our mission is to "Promote Healthier Families, Healthier Neighborhoods, and a Healthier Community." We have served our City of Waterbury community through many historic challenges since 1910, including the now historic COVID-19 global pandemic, 2020-2023. We are honored to have assisted more than 41,400 residents to date during their illness with COVID-19 from March 2020 through July 2023.
COVID-19 is still here. This fall, you may be eligible through the COVID-19 Bridge Access program to get vaccinated at no cost if you’re uninsured or your plan doesn’t cover it.

Ending the COVID-19 emergency declarations does not mean the virus has been eradicated. The Connecticut Department of Public Health continues to remind us all that we have the best tools available to stay healthy and that's how we've made so much progress from where we were three years ago. Residents still should get vaccinated, get the updated booster, use at-home tests, stay home when they're sick, and wear a high-quality mask when respiratory viruses are circulating at high levels in their community.
While vaccines remain the most effective way to prevent COVID-19 infection, there are also treatments available for people who are infected with disease. These treatments may help individuals avoid severe illness, hospitalization, and death. For more information, visit Test to Treat site locator.
