NEW JERSEY – The state has now released a list that shows – in order – when everybody in New Jersey can get the COVID-19 vaccine. Health officials also have identified the sites in each county that currently provide the vaccine (see the vaccine priority list, timeline and immunization sites below).

New Jersey announced this month that the state will roll out COVID-19 vaccines step-by-step to serve all adults who live, work or are being educated in the state.

The state's goal is to vaccinate 70 percent of the adult population – or 4.7 million adults – within six months.
Murphy said New Jersey is also developing a vaccine portal that will keep track of the immunization program. The site can be found here.

Registration for the vaccination has begun, and the current link (found here) from the state Department of Health has been available.

New Jersey also has announced that the state is continually expanding the number of COVID-19 vaccination sites. Click here to find out where you can get one now.

Who is eligible for vaccination next?

  • New Jersey Transit workers

  • Other critical workers (CISA)

This group was originally designated as 1C:
  • People living or working in congregate or overcrowded settings – such as colleges and
  • universities
  • People living or working in congregate or overcrowded settings – such as migrant workers
  • People living or working in congregate or overcrowded settings - Other
  • Tribal populations
  • Other people at high risk of COVID-19 illness due to comorbidities, occupations, demographics, etc.

New Jersey initially provided a timeline for the various groups and when they'll be vaccinated, but it's since been revised:

After these phases are complete, then the general public will be eligible for vaccination. The timing of the progression among the groups depends on the supply of vaccine to the state balanced by the demand in various phases, officials said.

Other things to know about the vaccine:
  • The state has changed the immunization system from an opt-in to an opt-out program for any resident who chooses to receive a COVID-19 vaccination. People who wish to be vaccinated against COVID-19 do not have to first opt-in to the system to make sure that their two-dose regimen is properly tracked and managed.
  • Thirty days after the current public health emergency ends, people who enrolled due to the COVID-19 vaccine will be afforded the opportunity to withdraw from the system. The Executive Order does not force anyone to receive the vaccine.
  • The state will securely store the vaccine recipient's name, address, date of birth, race, ethnicity, and gender. These are standard data elements that have been used across vaccines administered in New Jersey.
  • New Jerseyans can also expect to provide additional demographic and occupational data to ensure equitable and efficient scheduling of vaccinations.
  • Medical screening questions will be asked to assess eligibility. All data collected can only be used for public health purposes, like ensuring that the same person returns for a second dose of the same COVID-19 vaccine at the right time interval.
  • Data cannot be used for civil or criminal enforcement and cannot be used for immigration enforcement.

New Jersey is partnering with Rite Aid to provide vaccinations to home care and hospice staff. Information about scheduling appointments is being provided through home health agencies and their industry associations.

As of Dec. 30, through the Federal Pharmacy Partnership for Long-Term Care Program with CVS and Walgreens, New Jersey has over 500 long-term care facilities scheduled -–including the State's three veterans memorial homes – and over 100,000 residents and staff slated to receive vaccinations through the beginning of February 2021. Additional sites will be added in the coming weeks.

After nursing home residents and staff are vaccinated, CVS and Walgreens began to vaccinate thousands of residents and staff in other congregate settings including assisted living facilities, the five state developmental centers, federal housing for seniors and group homes and other long-term residential facilities.
New Jersey also has a network of community vaccination sites for vulnerable residents who live in congregate settings not eligible for this federal partnership.
New Jersey is also developing an extensive network of vaccination sites to serve those currently eligible for vaccination. In January, the vaccination sites network included acute care hospitals, large state-coordinated "mega sites," county/local sites, retail pharmacies and other medical locations.
At this time, New Jersey cannot arrange for all groups to receive distributions directly, so vaccine recipients may need to go off-site to be vaccinated, health officials said.

Six "mega sites" throughout New Jersey will serve as vaccination hubs for phased priority groups, part of a critical network of over 200 sites tasked with carrying out the state's COVID-19 vaccination plan fairly and equitably:
  • Atlantic County: Atlantic City Convention Center
  • Bergen County: Racetrack at Meadowlands, East Rutherford
  • Burlington County: Moorestown Mall
  • Gloucester County: Rowan College of South Jersey, Sewell
  • Middlesex County: New Jersey Convention and Exposition Center, Edison
  • Morris County: Rockaway Townsquare
