All Hoboken seniors that are at least 65 years old are invited to register here. Seniors will become eligible to receive the vaccine once the State of New Jersey moves into the next 1B and 1C phases of vaccinations.

“We want to make sure that when the day comes for our seniors to get vaccinated, we’re ready to efficiently schedule as many appointments as possible with our medical providers,” Mayor Ravi Bhalla said in a statement.

“This process is the latest way we as a city are prioritizing the health of our most vulnerable populations, and I encourage all seniors or family and friends of seniors to pre-register online as soon as possible.”

All friends and family of Hoboken seniors are invited to fill out the pre-registration form if a senior cannot complete the form or does not have internet access. The form includes required fields of first name, last name, age, address and phone number.

Beginning Wednesday, January 13th, seniors ages 75 and up will be able to call the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) hotline at 201-420-5621 between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. on weekdays to pre-register if internet access is unavailable.

Seniors can also leave a voicemail with CERT at that phone number starting Wednesday by providing first name, last name, age, address and phone number to pre-register.

Additionally, the Hoboken Office of Emergency Management, Hoboken Health Department and CERT will conduct door-to-door pre-registrations for seniors as well in the coming weeks.

The City of Hoboken has been working with RMG and the HUMC to administer the COVID-19 vaccine to healthcare workers, law enforcement and first responders over the past two weeks.

Currently, Riverside and HUMC are the two medical providers that have received shipments COVID-19 vaccines in the City of Hoboken.
