COVID VACCINATION INFORMATION FROM NJDOH
 
Dear Jeff,
 
New Jersey has experienced over 400,000 positive cases and approximately 16,000 deaths associated with COVID-19. Vaccination is the latest tool in our toolbox to stop the spread. New Jersey recently rolled out COVID-19 vaccines step-by-step to serve all who live, work or study in the state. 
 
Starting in mid-December and continuing into early 2021, vaccine access will be given to New Jersey’s Phase 1A Group: health care workers, who are paid and unpaid persons serving in healthcare settings who have the potential for direct or indirect exposure to patients or infectious materials.  Phase 1A also includes long-term care residents and staff
 
Please view and distribute the three (3) enclosed documents:
 
NJDOH requests your assistance to share this key information to all healthcare workers, paid and unpaid.  The State of New Jersey’s goal is to ensure an equitable and efficient COVID-19 Vaccination Program.
 
Thank you for your assistance.
 
Marcela Maziarz
Deputy Commissioner – NJDOH Health Systems
