Currently there are no appointments available through Princeton Health Department. Please do not call or email asking about appointments.


The vaccine supply is still limited. Princeton is not holding any new clinics and has no appointments available for the vaccine. Please understand that we are doing everything we can to get vaccines so we can hold clinics. We appreciate your patience during this time. Below is information on options on how to get a vaccine appointment.  


Princeton residents have three key strategies available to register for/find a COVID vaccine. 

1.    Pre-register on the New Jersey vaccination registration portal (NJVSS) This site will display one’s eligibility for the COVID-19 vaccine. Once the registration is complete, the New Jersey Department of Health (NJDOH) will reply with an e-mail assigning you to the appropriate Phase. NJDOH will follow up with a separate e-mail when it is time to schedule an appointment (See #2 for information on scheduling an appointment). If you experience an error or need help registering with the New Jersey Vaccine Scheduling System, you can complete an online form or call 855-568-0545 for customer service phone support. 

2.    Review a list of the NJ COVID-19 vaccine locations. The list of locations receiving and administering the COVID-19 vaccine is expanding daily, so check this site often. These locations will provide more accessibility for the general population. Some clinic locations are utilizing their own registration portal, links to these locations can be found on the vaccine location list. Registering with the clinic locations utilizing their own portals will increase your chance of getting an appointment for a vaccine. 

Please be patient with this process and do not call or email asking about appointments

If you receive a notice from the NJ Department of Health that you are eligible for a vaccine please visit the NJ COVID Information Hub website for vaccination sites and contact them directly to make an appointment.  

NJ COVID-19 Dashboard offers an insight on the COVID cases and vaccines distributed to date. Select the "Vaccination Overview" tab to view how many doses have been administered and the breakdown by County.
