Vaccinations are available for people 12 and over. Individuals between 12 and 18 must have a parent of legal guardian accompany them. Click here to visit Morris County’s website and learn about where to get an appointment.
• The vaccination center at Sears/Rockaway Mall is closed as of July 16, 2021.
• It is recommended that eligible residents register on the Atlantic Health site rather than the NJ site. The advantage for this approach is that you will be registered and notified when appointments become available. The registration on the state’s site only notifies residents when they are eligible for the vaccination; they must then still register for an appointment at the site of their choosing.
• When a resident receives a first dose, the appointment time/date is set up for the second dose.

The Washington Township Health Department identifies close contacts of all confirmed cases to determine the need for self-monitoring. Individuals who have been in close contact with that person will be notified and will be asked to self-quarantine for 14 days.
