The City of Hoboken is planning to go door-to-door to perform COVID-19 vaccinations for homebound residents, which will be done with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine and therefore only require one dose.

To pre-register a homebound resident, visit hobokennj.gov/vaccinesignup and select the new designation “homebound.”

Homebound residents, or their family or friends may also pre-register by calling the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) hotline at 201-420-5621, and leaving a message with the homebound resident’s first name, last name, address, age, contact phone number and email, if available.

The message should also indicate that the pre-registration is for a homebound resident.

The homebound designation must only be utilized for individuals who are physically unable to leave the home.

Hoboken joins Weehawken and North Bergen among local municipalities that have taken their vaccination efforts to the front doors of residents that are unable to travel to a vaccination site.

Earlier today, Hoboken University Medical Center Chief Hospital Executive Ann Logan said they had received the Pfizer vaccine for the first time, with the 1,170 doses to begin being administered tomorrow.
