[ARCHIVED] County Awaits Greater Vaccine Supply from the State; Will Be Ready for Expanded Distribution

CAPE MAY COURT HOUSE, NJ – The Cape May County Department of Health has administered the most doses of voice-19 vaccine by population in New Jersey as it awaits a greater supply of vaccine from the state.  The County first county vaccine administration site was established for the new year and another site will be fully operational on or before February 1, 2021.

Residents are encouraged to go to to register for the vaccine.  Once registered, residents will receive a notice from the state informing them that they can go into the system and schedule their vaccination appointment. Currently, the County is following the guidelines set forth by the State and administering vaccines to eligible residents who previously registered and to frontline personnel.

Residents are reminded that they must pre-register on the New Jersey State Vaccine Registration System.  A link to the registration and other information can be found at

“The beginning of our vaccination efforts has been challenging given the fact that we must await the state’s distribution of doses,” said County Commissioner Len Desiderio, Co-Chair of the County Recovery Task Force.  “But rest assured, we are doing everything that needs to be done to vaccinate as many of our residents as we can as quickly as possible once the state provides us with a sufficient supply of vaccine.”

Based on vaccine availability, after a resident registers he or she will receive an email notice of how and when to schedule an appointment. Vaccines are scheduled by appointment only, no walk-ins. Vaccination center locations will be provided upon scheduling the appointment.

Information on current eligibility for the vaccine can be found at
