NJ COVID-19 Updates and More

Reminder: Everyone Ages 5+ Can Get Vaccinated!

COVID Vaccine

Everyone ages 5 and older can get a free COVID-19 vaccine at a vaccine location near you.

COVID-19 vaccines for kids 5+ meet the same rigorous standards as other routine vaccines that protect your child from diseases.

Vaccination is important because it can help:

  • Bring back sports, playdates, and activities
  • Protect family members and those who can’t get vaccinated
  • Prevent serious health issues such as multisystem inflammatory syndrome
  • Keep kids in school for in-person learning
  • Prevent the spread of COVID-19 in schools and communities
  • End the pandemic and return to normal activities
