Phase 1 Vaccine Eligibility

 

1/14/21

 

Dear Partners in Health,

 

Gov. Murphy has today 1/14/21 expanded the phase 1 vaccine eligibility to include those over 65 and those with medical conditions that increase the risk for severe consequences in the 18-64 age group. Registration for the Covid 19 vaccine is essential. Vaccine supplies are received weekly to some pharmacies, megasites and county health departments. The amounts are at the discretion of the state department of health and according to availability from the federal supply of vaccine.

It is not a prerequisite that one obtains the vaccine only in their county. You may go out of county to obtain the vaccination,  however you must complete the registration.

To register please go to the passaiccountynj.org/COVIDVax site or to covid19.nj.gov. Please be patient. You may need to attempt registration more than 1 time.

There will be many opportunities to receive this vaccine. Please reach out virtually to friends and family and support their receipt of this vaccine for their friends, relatives and themselves. Please do this for us all.

 

Sincerely,

 

Bernadett McDavitt PHN  Your Public Health Nurse
