COVID-19 Vaccines Have Arrived in New Jersey


Vaccines began arriving in New Jersey hospitals this week and the first COVID-19 vaccinations were administered to frontline healthcare workers on Tuesday, December 15th. In the first phase of vaccine distribution, healthcare workers, and long-term care facility residents and staff will be the top priority for vaccinations. The State’s vaccination program will become much more robust over the coming weeks as more vaccine shipments arrive. Learn more about how COVID-19 vaccines are being rolled out.

Mask Up!


Protect yourself and others from COVID-19 by wearing a mask over your nose and mouth, especially when you cannot keep six feet of distance. Face coverings are required in New Jersey in indoor public spaces and in outdoor public spaces when social distancing is difficult to maintain. Learn more.
