We encourage senior citizens who have not been able to schedule a vaccination appointment to call the NJ vaccination hotline at (855) 568-0545. This hotline is staffed from 8 am to 8 pm but callers may need to call several times before reaching a representative.
NJ residents having difficulty pre-registering for vaccination can also submit an online form.
Please see the NJ COVID-19 Information Hub for further information about vaccination.
If you meet Phase 1A and/or 1B qualifications, you are eligible to receive a vaccine now.
The Ridgewood Health Department has a limited supply of COVID-19 vaccines for Ridgewood residents. At the moment, Ridgewood is not receiving new vaccine doses except those allocated for second doses.
If you are a Ridgewood resident and want to receive a vaccine, email your name, address, phone number, date of birth, reason you fit the qualification (e.g. age, COPD), race, and ethnicity to Covid@ridgewoodnj.net. If they obtain vaccines and can schedule you an appointment, they will email you.
Those that are not comfortable with email can call this number: 201-670-5500 x 244
The Health Department is doing its best to administer them as quickly as possible. If they can schedule you for an appointment, they will email you. Scheduling may take several weeks, and an appointment is not guaranteed.
Please also continue to look elsewhere for the vaccine. Ridgewood is not guaranteed a shipment of vaccine from the State.
For scheduling help or questions, call the Vaccine hotline at 855-568-0545.
Ridgewood residents should also pre-register on the State vaccine pre-registration site.
