HOW DO I REGISTER?

 

Those wishing to be vaccinated will be required to schedule an appointment through the New Jersey Vaccine Scheduling System (NJVSS) Registering is easy, and is the best way to reserve your spot to get a vaccine when you are eligible and there is a dose available for you.


step 1 - Visit https://covidvaccine.nj.gov and register using your name, email, and some other information that will help determine when you will be eligible.

step 2 - Check your email!  Once you complete your registration form, you will receive an email from something like: "DOH-No-reply CovidVaccine"  Be sure to check your junk/spam folders!
​ 
step 3 - Monitor your email for further instructions.  When you are eligible AND there is a vaccine clinic being held, the state will send you another email letting you know it is time for you to schedule your appointment.  The email will come from another version of  "DOH-No-reply CovidVaccine" ​and will most likely have a subject of "COVID-19 Vaccine - Schedule Your Appointment".  Once again... be sure to check your junk/spam folders!


step 4 - Click the link in your email and choose a location from the list posted online.   (Please note - You will be asked to provide your date of birth for verification before you can proceed.)  If there is not a clinic listed near or within your desired location, check back another time.  Sites will regularly be added and removed based on appointment availability.  Simply refer back to the link provided in the "Schedule Your Appointment" email from the DOH, click the link, verify your date of birth, and see if a clinic is available closer to you.


Keep in mind that the number of vaccines available may vary so you may need to check back several times if you are looking for an appointment at a specific location. Reservations are managed through the State's website at https://covidvaccine.nj.gov​. 

 

   

 

VACCINATIONS WITH MIDDLESEX COUNTY

 

If you secure an appointment at the Middlesex Coutny Fire Academy through the NJVSS, please be sure to:

​​

 

PLEASE NOTE...  Due to the limited quantity of vaccinations available, if the person is not in the eligible categories as defined from the state, is not at least 18 years of age or does not have a scheduled appointment, they will not receive a vaccine.


If you've been diagnosed with COVID-19 in the last 90 days, you may not be eligible to receive the COVID-19 Vaccine at this time.  Based on the estimated half-life of monoclonal antibodies or convalescent plasma as part of COVID-19 treatment/infection as well as evidence suggesting that reinfection is uncommon in the 90 days after initial infection, vaccination should be deferred for at least 90 days, as a precautionary measure until additional information becomes available, to avoid interference of the antibody that is already present with the vaccine induced immune response​​


 

THE DAY OF THE VACCINE


 Be sure to bring your ID, required paperwork, and a mask.   Wear comfortable clothing that can be removed to expose your arm for the shot and inspection during your observation period.   You should plan on staying for at least an additional 15 minutes for observation on the day of your shot.  


 


  

AFTER THE VACCINE


Some side effects are common, including:

  • Pain and/or swelling in the arm where you got the shot
  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Tiredness
  • Headache​​

In most cases, discomfort from fever or pain is normal. Contact your doctor or healthcare provider:
  • If the redness or tenderness where you got the shot increases after 24 hours
  • If your side effects are worrying you or do not seem to be going away after a few days

The CDC has an infographic​ that highlights what you can expect after your shot, and has created a downloadable health screening tool called V-Safe, which will help understand any side effects after vaccination. 

Since the COVID-19 vaccine is a two-dose series to be most effective, everyone receiving the vaccine is strongly advised to continue COVID-19 preventative measures such as:
  • Register for the CDC's "V-Safe" Health Screening Tool
  • Wear a mask in public at all times
  • Wash hands frequently
  • Maintain a safe distance of at least 6 feet from others
  • Return (with your CDC Vaccination Card) for your second dose
