Access to the COVID-19 Vaccine in New Jersey

New Jersey has been actively working to increase distribution of and access to the COVID-19 vaccine since it became available. As of May 1, 2023, more than 19 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine have been administered in the state, and more than 7 million people have completed the primary vaccine series, representing 79%. of the total population of New Jersey.

To achieve these results, New Jersey has been working to make the COVID-19 vaccine accessible to all residents, regardless of location or socioeconomic status. The state has opened several mass vaccination sites and mobile clinics and has partnered with local pharmacies and organizations to reach underserved communities. In addition, the state has launched a vaccine hotline and online registration system to help residents schedule vaccination appointments.

New Jersey has prioritized equity in vaccine distribution, reaching communities that have been disproportionately affected by the pandemic. The state has been focusing its efforts on areas with high infection rates and low vaccination rates and working to remove barriers to vaccine access, such as language and transportation barriers. Additionally, the state has partnered with community organizations to provide education and outreach on the importance of vaccination.

New Jersey has made significant progress in its efforts to increase vaccine distribution and access, prioritize equity in vaccine distribution, and remove barriers to vaccine access, which has helped make the vaccine available available to all residents. However, it is important to continue to be aware of this crisis. By working together and taking the necessary precautions, we can help protect ourselves and our communities from COVID-19.
