The federal government has implemented a system to order, distribute, and track COVID-19 Vaccines. These vaccines are ordered through the CDC.
COVID-19 vaccines are a key method to stop the spread of COVID-19. COVID-19 affects individuals differently; sometimes cases are mild, but other times they are severe and can lead to death. Not only will it protect you, but it will also protect your loved ones from contracting the virus. The vaccine will help your body create antibodies against the virus, without contracting COVID-19.
No. The COVID-19 vaccine will help our bodies learn how to recognize and fight the virus that causes COVID-19. When our bodies are in the process of learning how to fight a virus and build immunity against it, we sometimes get symptoms such as a fever. This is not COVID-19, it is a normal sign that the body is building immunity against a virus.
Yes. The U.S. vaccine safety system ensures that safety is the top priority when creating vaccines. There have been thousands of clinical trial participants for the vaccine, and if the FDA determines that the vaccines are safe and effective, they are approved for emergency use. The FDA gave full approval for the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine (aka Comirnaty) on August 23, 2021, for the prevention of COVID-19 disease in individuals 16 years of age and older.
Vaccine-safety monitoring systems continuously monitor for any adverse reactions that had not occurred during the clinical trials.
Additionally, smartphone technology allows for easy access to surveys where patients monitor how they are feeling and any side effects they may have after the vaccine, via the "V-Safe" app. The app also provides second dose alert reminders when necessary.
The doses of the COVID-19 vaccine that are paid for through the U.S. tax dollars will be at no cost to you. Providers of the vaccines may be able to charge administration fees but may be able to get a reimbursement fee through the Health Resources and Service Administration's Provider Relief Fund.
Individuals aged 5+ who live, work, or study in Connecticut are eligible to schedule appointments and receive a COVID-19 vaccine.
Common side effects of the COVID-19 vaccine include: pain and swelling where you got the shot, fever, chills, tiredness, and/or headache. They should go away within a few days. If redness or tenderness persists over 24 hours, or your side effects are worrying, call your doctor.
Reduce pain and discomfort by: applying a clean, cool, wet washcloth over the area and use/exercise your arm. Reduce discomfort from fever: drink plenty of fluids and dress lightly.
The VAERS system is used to collect any data on adverse events. It is important to understand the difference between a side effect and an adverse event. A side effect is any health problem shown through studies, (such as a fever for the COVID-19 vaccine), or unrelated health problems that occur whether the vaccine was administered or not.
An adverse event is a true reaction to the vaccine, such as common known effects and/or allergic reactions. Healthcare providers are required to report certain adverse events following the vaccine administration. The smartphone V-safe app will help check how patients who received the COVID-19 are doing.
If you or someone you know is unable to create an email address, scheduling over the phone is available through the CT COVID Vaccine Appointment Line at 877-918-2224.
Please bring a form of identification with you. Ask to schedule your second appointment if you are receiving Pfizer or Moderna.
If you have received a vaccination in the past 14 days, it is not recommended for you to get the COVID-19 Vaccine. The COVID-19 Vaccine should routinely be administered alone. Please schedule your COVID-19 Vaccine appointment for at least 14 days after your last vaccination.

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a family of over 5,000 man-made chemicals with many useful properties including the ability to repel water, prevent staining and increase heat resistance. PFAS have many industrial and consumer uses including the coating of fabrics, carpets, electrical wire, and non-stick cookware, in food packaging (e.g., microwave popcorn bags and fast-food wrappers), as a mist suppressant in metal plating, and in firefighting foam used by firefighters to put out petroleum fires, but not typically in home fire extinguishers. Four of the most studied PFAS, perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), perfluorooctane sulfonic acid (PFOS), perfluorononanoic acid (PFNA) and perfluorohexane sulfonic acid (PFHxS), are found with the highest frequencies and concentrations in the environment, in humans and in wildlife. We know the most about the harmful effects and environmental fate of these four PFAS. While PFOS and PFOA have been phased out of production, they are very persistent chemicals and can remain in the environment for long periods after being removed from the marketplace.
The CT DPH has derived individual health-based drinking water Action Levels (ALs) for four of the most widely studied PFAS that have also been detected in human blood more frequently and at much higher concentrations than other PFAS. These four compounds were included in our previous AL, “sum of CT 5” less than 70 ppt, set in 2016. The fifth compound, perfluoroheptanoic acid (PFHpA), lacks sufficient data to develop an individual AL. The current Action Levels are:
These Action Levels are based on the most sensitive, human-relevant effects seen in laboratory animals exposed to PFOS (immune effects); PFNA, PFOA (developmental effects); or PFHxS (thyroid effects). This new chemical-specific approach reflects the evolving scientific evidence on the toxicity of PFAS and is more protective of public health than our previous AL (sum of “CT 5” = 70 ppt). Also, the resulting individual ALs are within the range of drinking water guidance and standards more recently derived by another federal agency (Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, or ATSDR, 2018, 2020) and by other states, including most of our neighboring states.
The way in which these chemicals reach groundwater is still being investigated. Drinking water contamination has occurred near industries manufacturing or using these chemicals to make consumer products. PFAS use at metal plating facilities for mist suppressant can also be a source of groundwater contamination. Because of their use in firefighting foams, it is possible that fire training schools, airports, and sites where there was a major fire may have releases of PFAS. Landfills can be sources of PFAS because many types of wastes that contain PFAS can end up in landfills. Once on the ground, these chemicals can gradually migrate down through the soil when it rains and affect groundwater. PFAS do not biodegrade and are known to be persistent in the environment. Once a release has occurred that has impacted groundwater, it is possible, depending on the magnitude of the release, for PFAS to travel far away from the release area.
Many consumer products also contain PFAS, so it is possible that PFAS can be washed down the drain and into septic systems, thus becoming a source of groundwater pollution and potentially impact nearby wells. For more information on sources of PFAS, please refer to the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection’s PFAS webpage.
At the time the CT Action Levels for PFOA, PFOS, PFHxS, and PFNA were developed, there were insufficient toxicity data to allow DPH to include other PFAS chemicals. The PFAS analytical methods currently used for drinking water analyzes for a total of 29 PFAS chemicals out of the thousands of PFAS that are currently known to exist. Of these 29 chemicals, recent testing in CT shows that PFBS and PFHxA are the most commonly detected PFAS that are not part of the current four individually developed Action Levels. To date, no federal agency has set a safe drinking water level for either PFBS or PFHxA. CT DPH monitors the evolving toxicity data for these and other PFAS chemicals to identify when new or updated Action Levels are needed.
There is another consideration for why PFAS chemicals like PFBS and PFHxA are not part of the current PFAS Action Level. PFBS and PFHxA are compounds with short-chain chemical structures and thus are very different from the four PFAS with Action Levels, which have long-chains. We know from studies of humans and laboratory animals that short-chain PFAS are eliminated from the body much more quickly (on the order of days to months in humans) than long-chain PFAS (on the order of years in humans). Because short-chain PFAS are removed so quickly from the body, they are less likely to build up in the blood to a level that could cause toxicity. This is supported by the limited toxicity data (mostly from laboratory animal studies) for PFBS and PFHxA that indicate these chemicals appear to be much less toxic than long-chain PFAS such as PFOA and PFOS.
Connecticut DPH has identified limited data about how PFAS might affect the health of cats and dogs. Out of an abundance of caution, homeowners can choose to use an alternative water source for their pets if their well water exceeds the Action Level.
There are good data that show that the amount of long-chain PFAS in chicken eggs is directly correlated with the amount of PFAS in drinking water consumed by hens (short-chain PFAS such as PFHxA and PFBS are not readily transferred from drinking water to chicken eggs). Results from a 2021 study indicate that hens exposed to drinking water with a combined level of PFOS, PFOA, and PFHxS that exceeds 3000 ppt (ng/L) are likely to produce eggs with PFAS concentrations that would exceed the limit set by the Australian Government for human consumption (the US Food and Drug Administration, FDA, has not set any limits for PFAS in foods). Therefore, DPH advises that water with the sum of PFOS, PFOA, and PFHxS concentrations greater than 3000 ppt not be used for hens if the hens are producing eggs for human consumption. This guidance assumes that hens do not have significant exposure to PFOS, PFOA, and PFHxS from soil and/or feed.
PFAS in milk, or meat
There are no data on the uptake of PFAS into the meat or milk of sheep or goats. However, PFAS has been shown to be readily absorbed and excreted into maternal milk of laboratory rodents, dairy cows and humans. In the past few years, several New England farms have detected PFOS in cow’s milk at levels considered ‘unacceptable’ for human consumption. Since the cows’ exposure to PFAS was mainly through contaminated feed (and possibly drinking water), Connecticut DPH is unable to determine the level of PFAS in drinking water that would produce unacceptable levels of PFAS in milk. Given the findings about uptake of PFAS into maternal milk of lab rodents, dairy cows, and humans, it is possible that sheep and goats exposed to elevated PFAS in their water source could accumulate elevated PFAS levels in their milk. For this reason, DPH advises that water with PFAS concentrations greater than the Connecticut DPH Action Level not be used for livestock if the milk is used for human consumption.
With regard to human consumption of sheep or goat meat, there are no data on PFAS uptake into meat, but it is likely, that uptake would occur. Thus, out of an abundance of caution, the homeowner could choose to use an alternative water source for the sheep and goats if they are being raised for meat consumption.
Connecticut DPH continues to monitor the rapidly evolving science on PFAS. As more definitive information becomes available, we will update this FAQ.
Connecticut DPH has developed acceptable PFAS concentrations in water used to irrigate gardens. In developing these values, Connecticut DPH considered PFAS uptake into edible garden produce from irrigation water and consumption of garden produce by children and adults. Connecticut DPH’s irrigation water screening levels are:
At water concentrations greater than these levels, Connecticut DPH advises against the use of water for irrigation of garden produce intended for human consumption.
It should be noted that these screening values (with the exception of PFHxS) were adopted from work done by the state of Maine. Maine did not derive an irrigation value for PFHxS so Connecticut DPH opted to use Maine’s value for PFOS as a surrogate for PFHxS (thus the values for PFOS and PFHxS are the same).
PFAS cannot be removed by boiling the water. In fact, it may increase the PFAS concentration as the water will evaporate, but all the PFAS will remain.
If you are concerned about PFAS in your public drinking water, Connecticut DPH recommends you contact your local water utility to learn more about your drinking water and to see whether they have monitoring data for PFAS or can provide any specific recommendations for your community.
Bottled water is regulated by the Department of Consumer Protection as a food product. Many retail water bottlers publish water quality testing data, and while PFAS chemicals are not regulated in bottled water, many bottlers do test for it and include the information on their web pages. Some water bottlers use numerous sources and water quality may vary depending on the source location. If you are making your own purchasing decisions about bottled water, make sure that when you search for water quality data, you are viewing the data from the correct source.
Effective October 1, 2021; sections 86 and 87 of Public Act 21-121 require that bottlers collect samples prior to any water treatment and annually test each DPH approved bottled water source in Connecticut for unregulated contaminants such as PFAS chemicals. There are currently four Connecticut DPH-approved sources for bottled water located in the state of Connecticut, and these are the sources that bottlers would be required to sample and test. If the results of such sampling exceed Connecticut's PFAS drinking water AL, then DPH may require the bottler to discontinue use of the source until it is rendered safe to drink.
Bottled water delivered to homes in conjunction with a DEEP investigation has been tested for PFAS per the contract DEEP has with its bottled water vendor.
The main health concerns from ingestion of long-chain PFAS, such as PFOS, PFOA, PFNA, and PFHxS, come from studies in laboratory animals which consistently show effects on the liver and immune system, and on growth, reproduction, and fetal development. PFAS can also affect the endocrine (e.g., thyroid) and hormonal systems and can disturb blood lipids such as cholesterol in lab animals. Studies of human populations exposed to elevated levels of PFOS, PFOA, PFNA, and PFHxS generally support the effects seen in animals. Some studies of populations exposed to PFOA have also shown an increased risk for kidney cancer, and at very high exposure levels, for testicular cancer. Our bodies eliminate these long-chain PFAS very slowly, so they can build up over time with continued exposure. Therefore, even low levels in drinking water may increase your risk of developing a variety of health effects if exposure is long term (months to years). Exposure to PFAS above the Connecticut Drinking Water Action Level does not necessarily mean that health effects will happen. Short-chain PFAS, such as GenX (replacement for PFOA) and perfluorobutane sulfonic acid (PFBS, a replacement for PFOS), do not build up in the body over time; however, they have been shown to cause similar health effects in laboratory animals as their predecessors.
PFAS are not readily absorbed by your skin, so bathing, showering, swimming, and washing dishes in water containing PFAS is not a significant source of exposure.
There is no enforceable federal Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) for PFAS; only a federal EPA lifetime health advisory for PFOA + PFOS that was set in 2016. Some States that have identified PFAS contamination have proactively developed drinking water standards and guidelines. While states use the same standardized risk assessment approach for developing acceptable drinking water concentrations, there are many points in the process where professional scientific judgement is needed. Different decisions in the risk assessment process can result in variations in drinking water standards and guidelines; each of which are scientifically defensible.
In addition, some states have set acceptable PFAS drinking water levels more recently than other states. Consideration of newer toxicological data about PFAS can result in differing acceptable levels.
Connecticut DPH generally does not recommend testing your blood for PFAS. There are several reasons why. A PFAS blood test can tell you what your levels are at the time the blood was drawn, but not whether levels in your body are “safe” or “unsafe” or whether your health has been or will be impacted by PFAS. Virtually everyone in the U.S. (and the world) has measurable amounts of PFAS in their body because PFAS chemicals are so widely used in commercial and industrial products. Many of the health issues that have been associated with exposure to PFAS (such as increased cholesterol and decreased thyroid hormone levels) commonly occur in the population even without high levels of PFAS in the blood. These health issues can be caused by many different factors, and there is no way to know or predict if PFAS exposure has or will cause a health problem. It can also be complicated to get a PFAS blood test. It is not a routine test, not many laboratories can analyze blood for PFAS, and it is likely that health insurance would not cover the cost. Finally, a PFAS blood test will not provide information to pinpoint a health problem, nor will it provide information about treatment.
However, if you are concerned about your exposures and wish to have your blood tested for PFAS, you should speak with your physician.
We can be exposed to PFAS not only through drinking PFAS contaminated water, but also through pathways such as: eating foods packaged in PFAS containing materials; using consumer products such as non-stick cookware, stain resistant carpeting, and water repellant clothing; and, eating fish contaminated with PFAS. Nearly everyone has low levels of PFOA, PFOS, PFNA and PFHxS in their blood. These background levels likely come from consumer products and food packaging. You may still have some PFAS in your body years after the chemicals have been phased out because of their slow removal from the body. Limiting your use of these products and your consumption of PFAS-containing food can limit your overall exposure to PFAS. Consult the Connecticut Fish Consumption Advisory for information about eating fish caught in Connecticut waters and the US EPA for additional advice on how to limit your exposure to PFAS.
If your well is located near a suspected or probable source of PFAS, you might consider testing. PFAS testing is currently not broadly recommended for all private well users, because of the complexity of proper sample collection, cost, and the limited number of labs approved for testing for PFAS. If you’d like to consider testing, the list of labs certified to test for PFAS in drinking water can be found on the Connecticut DPH’s Environmental Laboratory Certification Program’s website.
Connecticut DPH encourages private well owners to test their drinking water for general potability and other common naturally occurring contaminants. For general private well recommendations on what to test for, why and how often, please refer to the Connecticut DPH's website: TestYourWell.ct.gov.
To date, the State of Connecticut has tested those private wells that are located near a confirmed exceedance of the Connecticut PFAS Action Level, as identified through independent testing performed by a public water system, remediation contractor or other entity. The State is in the process of developing a mapping application that can be used to identify areas with a higher likelihood to have been impacted by PFAS based on proximity to known or likely release areas. Consistent with the recommendations in the Connecticut PFAS Action Plan, the State will use that tool to determine which communities may be most at risk of PFAS contamination going forward.
If your well is being tested through a targeted investigation being conducted by the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) and PFAS are detected in your well water above the Connecticut DPH Drinking Water Action Level, then DEEP will arrange to have bottled water delivered to you on an interim basis while the most appropriate long-term solution is determined. If you tested on your own and PFAS are detected, please notify the DEEP Remediation Division contact for your town and DPH at DPH.EmergingContaminants@ct.gov for additional guidance.
Viable treatment options for PFAS reduction include granular activated carbon (GAC) and point of use reverse osmosis (RO). Treatment effectiveness is dependent on treatment sizing, contact time, and how well the device is maintained. For specific devices, it may be best to check with the manufacturer of your treatment device.
To find products certified to reduce PFOA and PFOS, by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) please refer to: NSFProtocol P473 Drinking Water Treatment – PFOA & PFOS. There are currently no treatment devices certified to reduce PFAS other than PFOA and PFOS. For more information please refer to the DPH Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl (PFAS) Detections in Private Well Water guidance.
If your home is part of an investigation initiated by DEEP, then DEEP will arrange to have a treatment system installed at your home should your levels of PFAS exceed the Action Level, at no cost to the homeowner. Treatment will be dependent on case specifics. DEEP will also arrange to have your water treatment system routinely maintained and serviced by a State contracted water treatment professional.

After your request is received a representative from the Highway Department will inspect the light in question and then send a report over to Eversource who will then provide a confirmation number that is logged in our system. Once the request for the light to be fixed is received by Eversource it is then their responsibility to fix it and is out of the hands of the City of Danbury. If you have questions regarding a light that was not fixed, Eversource may be contacted at 1-800-286-2000.
Curb repair begins in the spring after the asphalt plants open and is broken down into two parts: hand repair and machine repair. Hand repair is done first and is relegated to smaller breaks while machine repair may not begin until late summer and is for large-scale repairs. As a result, your curbing may have been broken by the plow driver during a storm in December but it may not be fixed until August or September of the following year as other factors - such as weather conditions and available manpower - influence when it will be fixed. Please be sure to contact 311 to report your broken curb, or email us if you have reported it broken and are looking for an update.
If you would like to request new drains or catch basins on your road please contact 311 and describe your problem to them and it will be sent over to the Highway Department for evaluation. The installation of new drains can be very costly and encompass many studies which may take some time before the project is completed; as a result please be sure to email 311 for updates on your service request.
The City of Danbury provides curbside pick-up for yard debris during the spring and the autumn months. The program runs for six weeks and alternates between zip codes for each week. Residents should place their leaves in paper bags that are not taped and place them curbside for pick-up. Other yard debris such as grass clippings or sod, as well as any rocks or pressure-treated lumber will not be picked up. If your bags have been sitting on the curb during the weeks allocated and have not been picked up, please contact 311 in order to notify us. If you wish to dispose of yard debris at times when we are not performing curbside pick-up, you can bring your debris to Ferris Mulch on Plumtrees Road.
Street sweeping typically begins in the middle of spring and runs throughout the end of summer into early fall and is dependent on many factors such as the availability of manpower, machines, as well as weather conditions. If your road has not yet been swept, please submit a service request so that it is logged and properly recorded.
The City of Danbury is proud to offer residents the opportunity to dispose of their recyclables at our recycling truck; which is located at a different location each day of the week from 10 am to 2 pm. Residents may dispose of such items as glass, plastics 1 and 2, cardboard, newspaper, magazines, and phone books free of charge. If you arrive at a designated location during the allotted time and the truck is not there it may be because: 1) The truck is full and the driver had to leave, or, 2) The driver is on a separate route (as he is also a truck driver for the city). Please do not dispose of your materials there in the hopes that he will stop by and pick them up but please bring them home and return on a different day. The schedule of places is:
Yes, if the plow driver tore up your lawn while plowing please report it to 311 to make sure that it is logged and recorded properly. Many times residents are unaware that their lawn has been damaged until after the snow melts; if that is the case please report it to 311 as soon as it is noticed.
Occasional "scalping" of lawns occurs during winter plowing operations. Some of these are deep enough to fill and re-seed. Others, while unsightly at first, are too shallow to fill. These will grow back on their own from the roots of the grass. Some areas, like corners, intersections, and hills among others, are prone to such damage more than other areas. The deep areas will be filled and seeded as time permits. The rest will be left to grow back on their own.
No, it is the responsibility of the property owner to maintain the drains that are located in front of their house. The city does not have the resources to commit our employees to clear leaves and other debris that are blocking the 3,800 drains within the city limits.
These occurrences should be reported to CityLine 311. You can talk to an agent 24/7 via our city website's "Service Request" chat feature at the top right corner of your screen or by calling 203-744-4311.
