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.

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

How to get vaccinated

To find COVID-19 vaccine locations near you: Search, text your ZIP code to 438829, or call 1-800-232-0233.

To schedule an appointment for the COVID-19 vaccine, reach out to the location where you normally receive vaccines such as the flu shot. Now that the vaccines are available commercially, they may be available at the locations other vaccines are administered. Check with your healthcare provider, pharmacist or community health center to see if they have the COVID-19 vaccine. To schedule an appointment, visit the vaccine provider's online scheduling service. If you have a question about scheduling your appointment, contact the vaccination provider directly. Some locations might accept walk-ins.
