COVID-19 Information & News

The Princeton COVID-19 Vaccination/Screening Form Waitlist has been suspended. 


Recently the State has informed Mercer County municipalities that during the current vaccine shortage, they will no longer supply vaccines to municipally-run clinics. The clinics held by Princeton Health Dept. and other municipal health departments will be on hold effective February 13, 2021. In the meantime local health departments will continue to support the vaccination efforts at the Mercer County Community College vaccination site. Mercer County has also partnered with Capital Health Systems to operate a clinic at the CURE Arena.  Appointments are required at both locations through the NJVSS. For more information on Mercer County's Vaccine Sites please visit Mercer County's website. 

Eligible residents who have already pre-registered with the municipality will continue to be offered appointments and then be scheduled into the available slots at one of the two county-facilitated vaccination sites, either Mercer County Community College or CURE Arena.  Those on the list should anticipate this may take weeks or more to vaccinate everyone. Given this anticipated timeline, we are suspending new registrations on the waitlist. Selection from the waitlist may prioritize the oldest residents and those unable to navigate larger venues. Those residents who are able to travel to other sites throughout the state should review the list of vaccination sites  and try to get the first available appointment at a different location.


All residents should register for the the NJ Vaccine Scheduling System.  If you receive an email from the NJ Department of Health advising that you are eligible for the vaccine, review the list of vaccine sites listed on the NJ COVID-19 Information Hub. Some sites have their own registration portals and you are strongly encouraged to register with those sites as well. This will increase your chances of getting an appointment for the vaccine. 

If you need assistance registering on the NJ Vaccine Scheduling System, please call 855-568-0545.
