Updated VACCINE REGISTRATION

This was a significant departure from the initial Phase 1A Category of individuals, who are currently being served at the Morris Regional Vaccination Center in Rockaway.  The logistics involved in implementing such a change are significant and predicated upon the availability of the vaccine, the implementation of coordinated registration and appointment technology, and the expansion of professional and medical staff.  The availability of the vaccine is key. As the Governor has repeatedly stated, the demand in New Jersey far exceeds supply, which is clearly the case for the Morris Vaccination Center.

In an effort to assist Morris County residents, a scheduling system has been established as well as sign up to be notified when appointments become available at Vaccine Appointments (atlantichealth.org). Based on vaccine availability, the individual will be notified when they are qualified to receive the vaccine AND when appointments are opening. Each individual will then be able to register for an open appointment.  

As I am sure you can imagine, the quick expansion of eligible persons has created more demand for the same limited supply.

The County has also established a COVID Hotline where further information can be obtained. This Hotline can be reached at 973-829-8250. The hotline is staffed 7 days each week, during business hours.
