The State of New Jersey recently expanded the eligibility guidelines for COVID 19 vaccinations to include a number of new groups. Detailed information phases, eligibility, registration, vaccine efficacy, vaccine safety as well as vaccine sites can be found on the State of New Jersey’s COVID-19 Vaccine information hub.State of New Jersey COVID-19 Vaccine Eligibility

Understanding that the vaccine roll-out is fluid with changes occurring on a regular basis, we strongly urge everyone to take advantage of this resource by familiarizing yourselves with this site and visiting it on a regular basis. It continues to have  the most up-to-date and detailed information currently available, including answers to many commonly asked questions. If you don’t qualify by the current eligibility requirements, you can still register on the NJ Vaccine Scheduling System and you will be notified when the vaccine is available for you. The university community is strongly encouraged to participate in this system.

As a reminder, Rutgers does not currently have vaccines nor are we authorized to vaccinate our community. However, as the federal and state programs evolve we will continue to work with the state in the hopes of implementing our own inoculation program. We anticipate the ability to provide details over the coming weeks.

As always, please Wear a face covering, Watch your distance, and Wash your hands!

The COVID-19 pandemic is constantly evolving; for information on the public health response, please check with the New Jersey Department of Health (NJDOH) or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for the most up-to-date information. For more information on vaccine clinical trials and approvals, you can visit the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) webpage.
