Upcoming COVID-19 Vaccination Clinics

6 month old+ COVID-19 Vaccine Information:  

The COVID-19 vaccine is now approved for ages 6 months and over. Appointments are able to be made available through NJ Vaccine finder: https://covid19.nj.gov/pages/finder. The Princeton Health Department strongly recommends residents contact their child’s primary care physician/pediatrician regarding this vaccination.  In the event that individuals do not have, or are not able to access a primary care provider, please e-mail healthdepartment@princetonnj.gov and we will do our best to schedule a vaccination through our office or another COVID-19 vaccine provider.

Updated COVID-19 Booster Information: COVID-19 boosters have been approved for all three COVID-19 vaccine products for ages 12+. Those who have had Pfizer or Moderna are eligible for a booster 5+ months after their initial series, and those who received Johnson & Johnson are eligible 2+ months after their initial vaccination. Eligible booster populations over 18 are able to choose any of the three vaccinations for their booster vaccination as long as they have completed the initial series. Boosters eligible for ages 12-17 are Pfizer only. 

The FDA has also approved an additional COVID-19 vaccine booster for those who are immunocompromised (ages 12+) and for those who are 50+. Immunocompromised individuals are eligible 3+ months after their 3rd dose and those 50+ are eligible 4+ months after their first booster dose. 

The Princeton Health Department will be hosting regular clinics at various locations. Appointments for these clinics can be made through the NJ Vaccine Scheduling System (https://covidvaccine.nj.gov/en-US/).  If you have any questions about boosters or upcoming clinics please email Julie Venema, jvenema@princetonnj.gov
