Salem County Department of Health has implemented a COVID-19 Vaccination Online Appointment Scheduler. Currently this is only open to individuals who qualify under Phase 1a & 1b defined by the Governor. This includes healthcare workers, first responders, adults over the age of 65, and any adult with underlying health conditions.
AT THIS TIME WE ARE VACCINATING ONLY SALEM COUNTY RESIDENTS
The Salem County Department of Health is scheduled to receive 400 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine Monday, March 8.
We will NOT be posting a link on our Facebook Page or website to schedule COVID-19 vaccination appointments online for next week. Instead, all appointments for the week will be scheduled through our Office on Aging and Disabilities for senior residents of Salem County who are 65 years of age or older.
