COVID-19 Vaccines

Everyone 6 months or older is eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine in New Jersey and encouraged to get vaccinated as soon as possible.

Adults ages 65 years and older and people who are immunocompromised may receive an additional updated, bivalent vaccine dose.

Individuals ages 6 years and older who have already received a bivalent booster dose do not need to take any action unless they are 65 years or older or immunocompromised.

For young children, multiple doses continue to be recommended and will vary by age, vaccine, and which vaccines were previously received.

COVID-19 vaccines are safe and highly effective at preventing you from getting sick.
