UPDATE: COVID-19 Vaccine Information

APRIL 9 UPDATE:
 
April 9: Per the CDC, the allocation of Johnson & Johnson vaccine doses from the U.S. government is expected to fall by 85% next week. The decline in supply, which also impacts about 1,000 anticipated doses for Mercer County, comes after the company had to discard 15 million doses of its coronavirus vaccine last month because the batch did not meet quality standards. Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccine dose distribution will remain steady, with 4.7 million first doses of Pfizer and 3.5 million first doses of Moderna allocated to states.

April 5: 
New Jersey has expanded its COVID-19 vaccine eligibility to anyone over the age of 55.

Another group now in line for the vaccine is people 16 and older with intellectual and developmental disabilities, or IDD. Studies have shown that people with IDD are at a higher risk of severe illness and death from COVID-19

March 31:  The New Jersey Department of Health (NJDOH) has launched a new online tool to help people more easily find COVID-19 vaccination appointments. The beta version of the state’s new appointment finder can be accessed at http://covid19.nj.gov/finder. The online tool aggregates information across multiple scheduling platforms multiple times an hour, Gov. Phil Murphy said, allowing people to search for available vaccine appointments at locations across the state. NJDOH will continue to test the appointment finder and make improvements, he said.

March 30: The West Windsor Health Department, which serves Robbinsville, announced a program to vaccinate all homebound residents of West Windsor, Robbinsville and Hightstown. Click here for details.

Feb. 10:
 National drugstore chains CVS Health and Walgreens are among the more than 20 major retailers now getting supplies of COVID-19 vaccines from the federal government.
The federal program announced last week will be implemented in stages, based on available vaccine supplies, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. READ MORE HERE.
 

Second Doses: If you received your first dose through the municipality you will be scheduled for the second dose at the same site. Those confirmations will go out as long as the vaccine has been received on time and we are not closed due to a winter storm. If the latter happens, that second dose will be administered soon thereafter.

Please be patient and do not flood the phone lines and emails of the municipality or the health department inquiring about your position on the list ... or waiting times. We are not equipped to provide this information. You will be contacted once an appointment is available. If you are a Veteran, or live or work at a VA facility, you may be eligible for vaccines through the VA.
