Should I pre-register and make my own appointment?

If you are eligible to receive a vaccine, there are generally three ways to get vaccinated. 

  1. You can make an appointment directly with one of the many designated vaccination sites across the state. Click here to view a full list of these designated vaccination sites.
  2. You can pre-register for the vaccine on the NJ Vaccine Scheduling System, and you will be notified when an appointment is available to you. Click here to visit the NJ Vaccine Scheduling System.
  3. Select healthcare facilities, including many hospitals, are offering vaccines directly to their workers. If you work at one of the facilities, you can contact your employer to learn if the vaccine is available to you from your employer.


Additional Information

Scheduling a direct appointment at a designated site:

There are numerous sites throughout the state that are currently administering the vaccine to qualified individuals. If you prefer, you can reach out directly to a site near you to attempt to scheduling an appointment. Please note that many of these sites may be fully-booked. No professional or medical documentation is required.

Pre-registering for the vaccine on the NJ Vaccine Scheduling System:

If you are eligible for the vaccine, and cannot obtain the vaccine through your employer, you can also get vaccinated by registering for a vaccine on the NJ Vaccine Scheduling System. This online portal enables prioritized groups of individuals and eventually the general public to find a vaccination site, pre-register, and schedule an appointment when one is available.

You can call 855-568-0545 for help with the NJ Vaccine Scheduling System. This number is an automated system. Live operators will be available in the coming days.

Obtaining a vaccine through your employer:

Vaccinations are underway at healthcare facilities in New Jersey for paid and unpaid healthcare workers. For example, hospital workers and volunteers have an opportunity to receive the vaccine at the hospital where they work or volunteer.

Residents and staff will also receive vaccines at over 500 long-term care and other congregate facilities through the Pharmacy Partnership for Long-Term Care.
