In addition to previously-announced vaccination eligibility across a wide range of categories, Governor Murphy announced that everyone 16 or older is eligible starting April 19. We strongly encourage you to get vaccinated - for yourselves and all those around you.
Governor Murphy announced new travel and quarantine guidelines. It’s another reason to get vaccinated. We will update the University’s corresponding guidelines accordingly.
We continue to prepare return to campus and fall 2021 plans and will communicate those as they are developed.
Each year the University provides a flu vaccine clinic. Some of you have asked whether we plan to do the same for COVID. Please know that we have reached out to government and corporate partners to express our interest in providing you a COVID vaccine clinic. While the current level of available vaccines means that is not yet possible, we will do all we can to provide this service when circumstances permit. In the meantime, we encourage you to consult the vaccination scheduling information below to make your own appointment.
Better days are ahead. But they are not here yet. Please continue to do your part. Do not let your guard down. Do not fall victim to pandemic fatigue. Follow the Seton Hall Pledge, whether you are vaccinated or not.
The State released information about a new vaccine appointment finder. The Vaccine Call Center (855-568-0545) is available to register individuals in the NJ Vaccine Scheduling System, answer questions about the vaccine, provide contact information for sites, check registration status, and update registration information.
FEMA launched a vaccination site at nearby NJIT, with a focus on vulnerable communities. To register and schedule an appointment call 855-568-0545 or visit covidvaccine.nj.gov.
Here is a list of the vaccination sites throughout the state.
Another site provides information to Find COVID-19 Vaccines Near You. This site provides nationwide information.
Essex County has received high marks for its vaccination process. You can learn more at the Essex County COVID site. As of this morning there were hundreds of open spots available.
The State Department of Health provides a full array of vaccine and vaccination-related information, some of it in multiple languages. Please check it out and share it with those you know who have concerns about being vaccinated.
The CDC and J&J issued a joint statement regarding the J&J vaccine.
Governor Murphy warned against "panic" over the J&J vaccine pause.
