The following information will continue to be updated. Thank you for your patience.
Millions of people in the United States have received COVID-19 vaccines since they were authorized for emergency use by the FDA. These vaccines have undergone and will continue to undergo the most intensive safety monitoring in U.S. history. This monitoring includes using both established and new safety monitoring systems to make sure that COVID-19 vaccines are safe (CDC, 2021).”
COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective. COVID-19 vaccines were evaluated in tens of thousands of participants in clinical trials. The vaccines met the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) rigorous scientific standards for safety, effectiveness, and manufacturing quality needed to support emergency use authorization (EUA).

Vaccines for Homebound Residents of Englewood:
As of May 6th the State unveiled a new webpage to link providers with those who can’t get to a vaccine site. The webpage covid19.nj.gov/homeboundvax does not schedule a vaccine but collects information on the homebound and sends it to local health departments, home-care agencies, pharmacies and other organizations authorized to administer a COVID-19 vaccine at home. The Englewood Health Department is vaccinating residents who are homebound, as well as their care-givers, in their homes. The vaccine to be administered is the one dose Johnson & Johnson. Claudette Murdock, the Health Department's Public Health Nurse, will conduct a home-visit to administer the vaccine. Please send contact details of eligible residents to email@example.com as soon as possible.
Eligibility Updated: Everyone 12 and older who live, work, or study in New Jersey are eligible for COVID-19 vaccines. Vaccines are available to all New Jerseyans, regardless of immigration or insurance status. For more information and help finding a vaccine appointment visit: COVID19.nj.gov
