More than 200 locations in New Jersey are offering COVID-19 vaccines — when available. But the supply is limited, and signing up for one or even finding a vaccination site can be hard.
On Monday, the state reported that more than 1 million shots have been administered, with about 224,000 people — roughly 24 of 1,000 residents — having received both doses necessary to give them maximum protection from the novel coronavirus.
More than 130,00 doses are now arriving in New Jersey each week, but demand remains greater than supply, state officials said. Still, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention vaccine tracker, only about 74% of the 1.48 million vaccines New Jersey has received had been administered as of Monday morning.
Although the state has advertised its website as the place where people can preregister or register for a vaccine, that is only booking appointments at the six mega-sites the state has set up. People can get a vaccine at hundreds of other places — when those sites get a supply; those sites are booking their own appointments separately. The confusing sign-up options can make it difficult for people who currently qualify to get a shot.
The map below shows all the sites where vaccines are being administered when they have supplies. The six state-run mega-sites in Atlantic, Bergen, Burlington, Gloucester, Middlesex and Morris counties are accepting people from across the state. At least some sites within counties are limiting shots to those who live or work in that county. Click on a site to get more information about scheduling an appointment there, whether by telephone or by website sign-up.
Currently, the only people eligible for vaccination in New Jersey are health care workers, long-term care residents and staff, first responders, people age 65 and older and those with specific conditions that include cancer, heart conditions and obesity.
