Somerset County Begins COVID Vaccination for Homebound Residents

 

The Somerset County Department of Health (SCDoH) today sent vaccination teams to the homes of residents who for medical or other reasons are unable to travel to the county’s clinics or other providers to receive their COVID-19 vaccine. The nurse-led teams are initially vaccinating homebound residents in Somerville, Raritan and Manville this week and will then move to additional municipalities.

Currently the list reflects approximately 550 residents, and the County is planning to visit 150 homes each week until the list is completed. The County is also partnering with the Community Visiting Nurses Association in Somerville and the Montgomery Department of Health to reach additional residents on the homebound vaccination waiting list.

To place a resident on the Homebound or Senior Citizen waiting lists, please call the County COVID Hotline at (908) 231-7155 or use the web form at http://www.co.somerset.nj.us/covidQs
