New app provides users with instant access to their immunization records.
Docket is a free new app for mobile devices that helps take the sting out of losing a COVID-19 vaccination card, by providing all the information at the touch of a button.
“The COVID-19 vaccination card is a small document that can be easily lost, damaged, or misplaced. Having your immunization records on the Docket mobile app is an easy, convenient way to ensure that information is at your fingertips whenever you need it,” said Union County Commissioner Board Chairman Alexander Mirabella.
Docket is offered through the New Jersey Department of Health in an effort to provide residents with easy access to their vaccination records. It is available as a free download in both English and Spanish, through the App Store or Google Play sites.
The highly infectious Delta variant is potentially causing a new wave of COVID-19 infections in New Jersey and elsewhere. The Commissioner Board strongly urges residents who have not been vaccinated to get their jab as soon as possible.
Ample supplies of vaccine are available in Union County, and making an appointment is quick and easy.

Union County currently runs three permanent vaccine sites with regular hours at the Dunn Sports Center in Elizabeth, at Kean University in Union Township, and at Plainfield High School in Plainfield.
In addition, the County’s mobile vaccination unit visits local neighborhoods. Upcoming visits include Plainfield, Roselle Park, Hillside, and Elizabeth. For a complete list with locations and hours of operation visit ucnj.org/covid19/vaccinations-page.
Residents who are home bound or who have difficulty leaving the home may be eligible for a home vaccination visit. To find out about eligibility, call the Union County Division on Aging and Disability Resources 1-888-280-8226 during regular weekday business hours.
The Docket app has been approved by the US Centers for Disease Control, and adheres to federal and state standards for data security and privacy. It is currently used in New Jersey and Utah. Plans are under way to roll it out in additional states.
The app is available to New Jersey residents who received their COVID-19 vaccination in New Jersey.
