If you are interested in getting vaccinated, please contact Aimee Maul at the Sussex County Office of Public Health Nursing at 973-579-0570, ext. 1211 or email amaul@sussex.nj.us. Spanish speaking residents can contact Claudia Yepes at 973-579-0570, ext. 1248 or cyepes@sussex.nj.us.

COVID-19 Vaccination Planning Q & A
January 15, 2021
Please review updates below highlighted with yellow shading. Counties are in a very fluid situation as the New Jersey Department of Health issues revised and/or new information on a regular basis. Several of the links below will take you to NJDOH sites for updates.
Is Sussex County preparing to administer COVID-19 vaccinations?
The Sussex County Department of Health & Human Services, Division of Health opened the COVID-19 vaccination site at the Sussex County Fairgrounds in Augusta on Thursday, January 14, 2021 in accordance with the State’s phased distribution.
Are two doses required?
Moderna and Pfizer require two doses, Janssen requires a single dose.
Will I get the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine?
Sussex County administers the Moderna vaccine. Future shipments could be provided by other manufacturers. You will receive a card at the time of your first vaccination with pertinent information and a schedule for the second round of vaccine to be administered.
How do I schedule my second vaccination?
If you received the first vaccination at the Fairgrounds, an email from Sussex County Health will be sent to you shortly scheduling your second vaccination. Unfortunately there is very little flexibility to reschedule. You are encouraged to accept the reservation time and date so as not to delay this opportunity.
Who and how are priorities set for obtaining vaccinations?
Sussex County receives direction from the New Jersey Department of Health. Review the most current vaccination guidelines.
I am or I know a senior citizen who is not capable of filling out the form on line and may need transportation to the Fairgrounds vaccination center. What should I do?
The Sussex County Division of Senior Services is providing assistance to our seniors. The staff will help with a referral to Skylands Ride and/or help fill out the vaccination registration and appointment scheduler. You can call the office at 973 579-0555 during regular business hours, Monday through Friday. Please understand that if multiple callers are ahead of you, a voice message should be left with your name and return telephone number. A Division of Senior Services staff representative will get back to you with advice and/or assistance.
Will there be regular updates on line?
Absolutely! Sussex County will endeavor to keep its web page up to date throughout the vaccination period.
I have underlying health issues and I am scared about a reaction to the vaccination? What happens if I have a reaction?
Sussex County recommends that you consult your medical provider if you have any concerns or have ever experienced an allergic reaction, even a mild reaction to a vaccination or food. Your physician is the best source of guidance. If you are pregnant or think you might be pregnant, consult your physician. If you are breast feeding, consult your physician. Please do not simply rely upon internet sources. Trained Public Health Nurses will be at the vaccination site. A protocol for monitoring you immediately after receiving a vaccination is in place. You should anticipate remaining at the vaccination site for 15 minutes and in some cases (if you have experienced past allergic reactions to foods or mild reactions to a vaccine) 30 minutes. The protocol will be explained to you upon arrival. If you have had a significant reaction to a vaccine in the past such as hives, trouble breathing or other symptom, you may not qualify to receive a vaccination through the Sussex County site. Clinics with a higher level of healthcare support are better suited to handle a negative reaction to the vaccine.
How do I get my children vaccinated?
Currently, the Pfizer vaccine is approved for 16 years of age or older while Moderna is approved for 18 years and older according to limitations assigned by the United States Food and Drug Administration. Hopefully, a vaccination will eventually be deemed safe for juveniles but as of this time the two vaccines in the pipeline have age restrictions.
This sounds like an enormous endeavor? Can I just get my vaccinations from my pharmacy or medical provider?
Absolutely. Please review the list of providers above or visit https://vaccinefinder.org/.
When should I recheck this site?
Information changes with each week. Check this site regularly and again, please be patient. The vaccination process will be underway through much of 2021.
A number of links are provided below with additional information. Please spend a few minute reading the data presented by Pfizer, Moderna, the NJ Department of Health and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Links will be refreshed as new date is released.

Please stay healthy and safe. Wear a mask in public at all times. Social distancing is critical. Wash or sanitize your hands often.
