MONTPELIER, Vt. (WFFF) – Vermonters age 40 and over are now eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

The state began accepting appointments for those people at 8:15 on Monday morning. Next week, the age will drop to those 30 and up. On April 19, all Vermont adults will be eligible to be vaccinated.

The presence of the virus in Vermont has been increasing in recent weeks. Officials say the state is in a race to vaccinate as many people as possible to help stop the spread of the virus.
