Upcoming COVID-19 Vaccination Clinics
COVID-19 boosters have been approved for all three COVID-19 vaccine products. Those who have had Pfizer or Moderna are eligible for a booster dose 6 months after their second dose and those who received Johnson & Johnson are eligible 2 months after their initial vaccination. Eligible booster populations are able to choose any of the three vaccinations for their booster vaccination as long as they have completed the initial series. Through November the Princeton Health Department will be hosting weekly office clinics at One Monument Drive. The schedule for these clinics is listed below. Appointments for these clinics can be made through the NJ Vaccine Scheduling System. Walk-ins are also welcome. If you have any questions about boosters or upcoming clinics please email Julie Venema.
5-11 Year Old COVID-19 Vaccine Information:
The COVID-19 Pfizer vaccine is now approved for residents ages 5-11. To find an appointment for this age group, appointments are able to be made available through https://covid19.nj.gov/pages/finder. At this time, locations offering vaccines to this age group are limited but are expected to increase quickly over the course of the next week. To identify locations offering Pfizer vaccine to 5 years and older, search by zip code and review the “Min. Age” identifier. The Princeton Health Department is working to expand its clinics and begin to administer the vaccine for this age group. The most up-to-date information on vaccine availability can be found through the NJ Vaccine Scheduling System.
