Get COVID Vaccinated!

The COVID-19 vaccine is a safe and effective way to protect you, your loved ones and the broader community against the virus. It’s also our best hope to help our communities, schools and economy move forward from this pandemic. The state has established a website at COVID-19 Vaccine (nj.gov) with vaccination locations and scheduling information, or call the state’s COVID vaccine call center at 855-568-0545.

At A Glance

  • A successful vaccination effort will allow New Jersey to emerge from this pandemic, and we all play a role in making that a reality.
  • There are several different types of vaccine that protect against COVID-19. All of them go through a strict oversight process for safety and efficiency that includes scientists and physicians at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
  • Side effects from the vaccine may include short-term pain at the injection site, fever, fatigue, headaches and body aches. Side effects show that the vaccine is doing its job in activating your immune response to fight the virus.
  • Initial supplies of the vaccine are limited, but more is being delivered to New Jersey every day.
  • New Jersey has a phased approach for administering the vaccine, starting with healthcare workers and people in nursing homes, followed by those ages 65 and older and with underlying medical conditions. Sign up for an appointment or register for future phases of the vaccine distributions.
