NEW COVID-19 HOTLINE (855) 568-0545
The website to pre-register for the vaccine is now live. Please visit https://covidvaccine.nj.gov/
The general public can now pre-register, and this will allow our residents to input their personal, contact, health insurance, and demographic information. It will also allow for individuals to schedule an appointment for those who are immediately eligible based on screening questions.
We understand the site is receiving heavy volume currently, and is crashing frequently.
People can try to register, but currently only healthcare personnel and those who work in health care settings are eligible for vaccine right now
Senior who live-in Long-term care facilities are getting their vaccines through the large pharmacy chains, which is a federal program. These are the people who are eligible currently under Phase 1a.
Phase B will include seniors over 75 and others with health conditions.
Residents can try to register on the site, but its new as of this week, and only Phase 1 people would be contacted as to their current eligibility and where they can go.
We know everyone wants to get vaccinated, but it’s very early on in the State program, and it could be quite a few weeks till the general public is eligible.
Our Health Officer Service Mid Bergen will have a distribution dispensing site, but they are not up and ready yet.
