COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution Phase IA

" "

Vaccination for COVID-19 began in New Jersey on Tuesday, December 15, 2020. 

New Jersey has experienced over 400,000 positive cases and approximately 16,000 deaths associated with COVID-19. Vaccination is the latest tool in our toolbox to stop the spread. New Jersey recently rolled out COVID-19 vaccines step-by-step to serve all who live, work, or study in the state.

Starting in mid-December and continuing into early 2021, vaccine access will be given to New Jersey's Phase 1A Group: health care workers, who are paid and unpaid persons serving in healthcare settings who have the potential for direct or indirect exposure to patients or infectious materials. Phase 1A also includes long-term care residents and staff. 


  • Phase lA health care workers - Pre-register for COVID-19 vaccination at these Vaccine Locations (PDF)
    • Vaccine dispensing sites are NOW OPEN across New Jersey for Phase 1A healthcare workers. Below is a list of open vaccine dispensing sites.
    • Potential vaccine recipients that fall in Phase 1A healthcare workers can choose the vaccine dispensing site nearest to their home or work
    • Please call the dispensing site's phone number to schedule an appointment.
    • No walk-in appointments are available at this time.
    • Please note that vaccine dispensing sites vary in hours of operation and scheduling processes. We ask for your patience as the State and vaccine dispensing sites continue to refine our operations for the vaccines program.
    • In early 2021, New Jersey will launch its statewide vaccine scheduling system, the New Jersey Vaccine Scheduling System (NJVSS), to help all potential Phase lA vaccine recipients to identify nearby points of dispensing sites (PODs) and schedule an appointment.
    • Those not yet eligible for the vaccine can learn more about the vaccine program on covid19.nj.gov
