Starting today, everyone who is 16 or up and lives, works, or goes to school in New Jersey is eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. There is no charge. 

There are many ways to register for a vaccine. To be vaccinated at the Mercer County sites, the CURE Arena in Trenton or Mercer County Community College in West Windsor, sign up here with the state.  If you have registered with the New Jersey Vaccination Scheduling System and have not received an email acknowledging your registration, please check your spam/junk folders for emails from New Jersey Department of Health (NJDOH), which manages the NJVSS, or re-register. People without internet access can register by calling 855-568-0545. For questions specific to Mercer County, you can also email Mercer County.

Online resources that can help you register for a vaccine can be found at Mercer County resources and State of New Jersey vaccine resources. If you are a Veteran, or live or work at a VA facility, you may be eligible for vaccines through the VA

Helpful volunteers from around the state are working with people who continue to struggle to get vaccine appointments. On Facebook, there is the New Jersey Covid Vaccine Info group. On Twitter there is the Vaccine Bot, the Vaccine Helper, the NJ Vaccine Tweet Bot, and VaxxUpdates. Finally, there is a search on the Vaccinate NJ site and the helpers on New Jersey Vaccine Matchmakers group. All of these resources are staffed by volunteer "vaccine angels" who help people secure vaccine appointments. 

Mercer County provides free testing for Covid-19, which can be done at home or in person. Register here  for at home testing. Information about in person sites can be found on the Mercer County testing website.

The state’s COVID-19 Vaccine Call Center is at 855-568-0545 has operators available to assist anyone with Covid-19 vaccine questions. The call center is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days a week.
