COVID Vaccine Information for NJ Health Care Providers and Practices Interested in Administering the Vaccine

ACP Physician's Guide + Resources. Click image to open.

New Jersey is developing an extensive network of vaccination sites that will be open to all healthcare workers. By early January, the vaccination sites network will include acute care hospitals, large state coordinated mega sites, county/local sites, retail pharmacies and other medical locations.

At this time NJDOH is not able to arrange for all groups to receive distributions directly, so healthcare personnel may need to go off-site to be vaccinated. Hospital workers and volunteers will have an opportunity to receive the vaccine at the hospital where they work or volunteer. All other healthcare workers and volunteers, including those outside of hospitals and long-term care, will be able to receive the vaccine through other vaccination sites at pharmacies, urgent care centers, federally qualified health centers, hospitals, local health departments, other state- and county-run sites, and other medical clinics.

ADMINISTERING THE VACCINE

Practices interested in eventually offering and administering the COVID-19 vaccine to your patients need to be registered with NJIIS.

Antibody Infographic

This antibody infographic explains what antibody tests can and cannot do. NJDOH wants people to know that a positive antibody test is NOT a pass to skip wearing a mask and ignore physical distancing. People with positive results may still get COVID19 and infect others. Testing is encouraged because the data collected from testing is crucial to ongoing research.  Click to view.

Information and Next Steps for Patients

Check out these “information and next steps” documents for patients who test positive and patients who test negative. Note that the quarantine period has been extended from 7 to 10 days because the virus sheds longer than originally thought. Use the links below or click here to find these documents.

Join our NJ Physician's Forum

Please join our NJ Physician's Forum, a secure place for New Jersey physicians to discuss, share and network as we face this rapidly evolving crisis.

It is our hope that this is a place where NJ physicians can share questions, problems, solutions, and ideas with one another to assist the primary care community in being unified in its response.

Feel free to start threads as you see fit – including sharing info on telehealth issues.
