Many residents have questions regarding the COVID-19 immunization. When will it be available? Is it safe? Where can I obtain information? Where can I be vaccinated? The distribution of vaccine is based on a federal plan which prioritizes specific groups such as healthcare workers and critical infrastructure employees. The second group include people with chronic medical conditions and seniors, followed by the general public.
Currently, the supply of vaccinations is outweighed by demand. As supply increases in the coming months, more appointments AND more vaccination sites will open up. Ultimately, most people will be able to get a vaccination at a local pharmacy or at a doctor’s office. Until the supply is at its peak, please follow health guidelines to keep you and your family safe, and be sure to register for a vaccine at one of the websites below so that you will be notified when appointments are available.
At the State Level
NJ residents can now pre-register for the COVID vaccine. Note that when you register for a vaccine, this does not mean that you are making an appointment. You will be notified when appointments are available.
On Monday, January 25, the state will activate a call center where residents can call for vaccine information and appointments. That number is 855-568-0545.
For the latest information on vaccine safety, when vaccinations will become available, and other updates, residents are urged to routinely check the NJ Department of Health COVID-19 vaccination website.
At the County Level
Morris County residents can also register with Atlantic Health to receive their notifications about COVID-19 vaccine appointment availability.
Morris County has established a COVID Hotline where further information can be obtained. This Hotline can be reached at 973-829-8250. The hotline is staffed 7 days each week, during business hours. This number is not for making appointments.
