Who is eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine in New Jersey?
Last Updated: 08/24/2021
Who should receive additional COVID-19 vaccine doses?
People with moderately to severely compromised immune systems who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 with the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccines should receive an additional dose after the initial two doses. This additional dose is intended to make sure that immunocompromised individuals have enough protection against COVID-19 as they may not build the same level of immunity from the two-dose vaccine series as people who are not immunocompromised.
The additional Pfizer or Moderna dose should be of the same product as the initial vaccine series. However, if the vaccine administered previously is not available, the other mRNA COVID-19 vaccine product may be administered. Nobody should receive more than three COVID-19 vaccine doses.
At this time, additional doses are not recommended for those vaccinated with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
Everyone 12 or older who lives, works, or studies in New Jersey is now eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine.
