ABSTRACT

New Jersey Interim COVID-19 Vaccination Plan   [open pdf - 252KB]

From the Executive Summary: "'COVID-19's [coronavirus disease 2019] devastating impacts motivate New Jersey to build a robust COVID-19 vaccination program.' In January 2020, the State of New Jersey started actively tracking the outbreak of a novel coronavirus. Since the COVID-19 public health emergency was declared through Executive Order No. 103 on March 9, 2020, New Jersey has mobilized a statewide, data-driven COVID-19 response that includes healthcare capacity expansion, focus on vulnerable populations, scaling of testing, contact tracing and exposure notification mobilization, resource provision, and resiliency planning. The State informs COVID-19 efforts through transparent information to the public and through funding and technical guidance to local partners. New Jersey began COVID-19 vaccination planning in the context of considerable unknowns regarding vaccine safety, efficacy, availability and timelines, federal distribution logistics, supplies and funding resources, public demand, likelihood of community protection through vaccination, and other factors. New Jersey submitted a Draft Interim COVID-19 Vaccination Plan to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for feedback on October 16, 2020, but New Jersey will adapt its phased approach as unknowns are resolved."
