To get an appointment, everyone is encouraged to register with the New Jersey Vaccine Scheduling System (NJVSS) if they have not already. Once you have registered with NJVSS, when you are eligible for an appointment based on your health grouping, you should receive an e-mail letting you know that you can make an appointment and at which sites that vaccines are available.
However, Middlesex County government-operated vaccination sites, such as that at 1 Ericsson Drive in Piscataway, no longer accept appointments made through NJVSS. Instead, Middlesex County residents may make appointments for the vaccine through the County’s system.
Which sites have vaccines, including the Ericsson site in Piscataway, when you are eligible to be vaccinated and what vaccines are available will depend on the number and type of dosages that Middlesex County receives.

New Jersey has launched the state’s official health insurance marketplace, “Get Covered New Jersey,” to provide improved access to health coverage for all New Jersey residents. New Jerseyans will no longer use Healthcare.gov to shop for health insurance. Instead, you can now shop at GetCovered.NJ.gov.
You can now enroll and the expanded three-month open enrollment period extends to January 31, 2021.
In addition, the State of New Jersey recently created a new program to provide additional financial help to residents to lower the cost of health coverage. Nearly 8 out of 10 New Jersey residents will qualify for these cost saving options that significantly reduce the cost of quality health insurance.
