The state of New Jersey has open a “pre-registration portal” for residents to sign up to receive vaccination against Covid-19. Sign up at https://covidvaccine.nj.gov/. You might also call around to local hospitals or pharmacies to see if they have openings in their own distributions of the vaccine. One resource suggested by others in our Diocese is the Vaccine Spotter website. It can help you find pharmacies with available appointments. Finally, the Diocese of New Jersey is offering assistance for anyone having difficulty making an appointment.
The CDC has provided guidance for those who have received the Covid-19 vaccine. Some protocols are relaxed among “fully-vaccinated” persons in private settings. For as long as not everyone has access to the vaccine, we will as a parish observe the protocols that keep everyone – including the unvaccinated – safe. This is a matter of justice: we do this in order to be in solidarity with all God’s children.
Announcements for the bulletin or parish email are due into the office by noon on Wednesday of each week. You can email them to firstname.lastname@example.org or call the office at 856-881-9144. Announcements are subject to editing due to limited space.
