The Union County Board of County Commissioners announced on January 14 the opening of an online registration system at www.ucnj.org for those eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccination.
The registration system is currently open. Please note the registration system will only log those who are eligible to receive the vaccination. Those who are ineligible to receive vaccinations will not be allowed to pre-register, and must wait until they are eligible. The County is offering the Moderna vaccine.
Those who are eligible to receive the vaccine include paid and unpaid persons serving in health care settings who have the potential for direct or indirect exposure to patients or infectious materials and long-term care residents and staff, and also sworn law enforcement personnel and fire professionals. The Governor also announced that beginning tomorrow, residents 65 and above are also eligible to receive the vaccinations, as are those between the ages of 16-64 with medical conditions, as defined by the CDC, that increase the risk of severe illness from the virus.
The County’s COVID-19 vaccination clinic is located at Downs Hall at Kean University in Union, and is currently open five days a week from 3-7 p.m. Once more vaccines are available, the County is planning to offer the COVID-19 vaccine in different areas of the County.
