“Our Administration has worked closely with communities to build an extensive vaccination infrastructure and has opened over 700 vaccination sites across the state,” said Governor Murphy. “We are already averaging approximately half a million shots per week, and with an expected increase in our federal allocation, we are confident we can expand our vaccination program to more of our essential workers and vulnerable populations. Together with our community partners and a steady supply of vaccine from the federal government, we will meet – and exceed – our goal of vaccinating 4.7 million New Jersey adults.”

Do I need to keep my COVID-19 Vaccination Card? Is it really a passport?

Governor Phil Murphy referenced the notion of a COVID-19 passport using your CDC issued COVID-19 Vaccination ID card. That card could be used in the future as a requirement to book vacations, attend concerts or sporting events, leaving and entering the country and access to certain government services. Murphy did not elaborate on how that passport will work and said the guidance should come from the CDC, adding that “I support the idea.” As of this publishing there is no law or executive orders, but many private businesses in the travel industry and entertainment industry are requiring proof of vaccination to attend events or use their services.
