Mayor Ravi S. Bhalla and the Hoboken Health Department encourage all Hoboken residents ages 16 and up to pre-register to receive the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine through the Hoboken Health Department at Carepoint. The Hoboken Health Department has opened the City’s pre-registration list to now accept sign-ups for all Hoboken residents ages 16 and up, who will become eligible to receive the vaccine as of Monday, April 19. The City will soon begin scheduling vaccine appointments at Carepoint from the pre-registration list for next week.
Hoboken residents ages 16 and up can now pre-register at the following link: www.hobokennj.gov/vaccinesignup, while selecting the category “general public”, if they do not meet other currently listed categories. Those pre-registering are encouraged to provide an e-mail address if they have one, to allow for a faster registration process.
“Getting vaccinated remains a critical part of overcoming the pandemic and keeping our community safe,” said Mayor Bhalla. “The data demonstrates that the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines are safe and effective, and I encourage all residents to get one as soon as an appointment becomes available. I also ask all residents to consider talking to their friends and family, and assist them in signing up for the vaccine as well.”
Hoboken residents ages 16 and 17 require a parent or guardian to pre-register on their behalf in order to receive a vaccine through the Hoboken Health Department at Carepoint.
The Hoboken Health Department is currently being supplied with 1,170 Pfizer and 300 Moderna vaccines per week from the New Jersey Department of Health. Residents ages 16 and up will soon be able to register for an appointment in other locations including Hudson County’s site in Kearny, and State-run locations. Demand may exceed supply for a period of time after April 19, given the expanded eligibility.
