How to Stay Healthy this Holiday Break

Dear Campus Community,

On Wednesday, December 15, the state will mark the one year anniversary of administering the first COVID-19 vaccination in New Jersey by designating it as Boost NJ Day to encourage residents ages 16 and older to receive booster doses. The Department of Health is working with more than 2,000 vaccination sites across the state to offer expanded walk-in availability and extended hours to increase vaccine accessibility.

  • If you received your 2nd Pfizer or Moderna vaccination six months ago or J&J/Janssen vaccination two months ago, you are now eligible for a booster. Vaccine boosters offer needed protection against COVID-19 and its variants, particularly as we continue a busy holiday and traveling season.

  • Upload your booster vaccination record into OWL (students) and/or Oracle Cloud (employees).

  • Covid testing hours 12/27/21 – 1/21/2022:

  • Week of December 27, 2021: Mon, Wed, Fri: 7 – 9 a.m.

  • January 3 – 21, 2022: Mon: 2 – 4 p.m.; Wed & Fri: 7 – 9 a.m.

  • Regular test hours resume on Monday, January 24.

Our best wishes for a healthy and joyous holiday season.
