Which vaccine will I get?
Not all sites administer all vaccines, so it is important to check with your vaccination site before scheduling a visit to ensure you are eligible.
The County of Sussex is administering Moderna and J&J vaccines (18+).
How do I schedule additional vaccinations after getting my first?
This will vary with each vaccination site. When choosing a vaccination location for your first vaccine, ask them how you will need to go about getting additional vaccines or visit https://covid19.nj.gov/pages/finder to get vaccinated.
Who and how are priorities set for obtaining vaccinations?
Sussex County receives direction from the New Jersey Department of Health. Review the most current vaccination guidelines.
I have underlying health issues and I am scared about a reaction to the vaccination? What happens if I have a reaction?
Consult your medical provider if you have any concerns or have ever experienced an allergic reaction, even a mild reaction to a vaccination or food. Your physician is the best source of guidance. If you are pregnant or think you might be pregnant, consult your physician. If you are breast feeding, consult your physician. Please do not simply rely upon internet sources. Trained Public Health Nurses are at Sussex County vaccination sites. A protocol for monitoring you immediately after receiving a vaccination is in place. You should anticipate remaining at the vaccination site for 15 minutes and in some cases (if you have experienced past allergic reactions to foods or mild reactions to a vaccine) 30 minutes. The protocol will be explained to you upon arrival. If you have had a significant reaction to a vaccine in the past such as hives, trouble breathing or other symptom, you may not qualify to receive a vaccination through the Sussex County site. Clinics with a higher level of healthcare support are better suited to handle a negative reaction to the vaccine.
Please stay healthy and safe.
