Vaccination Appointment Assistance
NJ Vaccine Matchmakers through the charity WGirls is a group that has assisted with scheduling over 20,000 people in New Jersey for COVID-19 vaccinations.
With the expansion of vaccine eligibility on Monday, they are anticipating having many parents looking to get their 16 and 17 year old children vaccinated. They can be assigned to a volunteer simply by completing this form.
Only the Pfizer vaccine is approved for 16 and 17 year olds (not Moderna which is 18+), and only some sites administer Pfizer.
