Much has been made of the CVS/federal government Covid19 vaccination partnership. The following is what one sees on February 11, 2021 at the CVS website [ ]:

As to the website of Comcast/NBC at , one finds

Of the first place on the list, Hunterdon Healthcare, one finds:

POSTED 2/10/2021 @ 11:00 am The COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic scheduled for Saturday, February 13th is FILLED. The Vaccination Call Center is currently closed until more vaccine is available.

Thus, the information on the NBC "plan your vaccine" on February 11, 2021 was "out of date."

The RWJ site says:

Due to supply limitations, vaccination appointment availability is extremely limited at this time. Once registered, it may be some time until you receive your link to schedule an appointment.

The Hunterdon Family Medicine only has a phone number.

The RVCC (Somerset County) link provided by NBC plan merely goes to the state website
Independently, NBC plan website also directs one to the New Jersey state registration site. A seventy year old citizen receives the following:

Thank you for registering! COVID-19 vaccinations will be made available in phases to ensure those most at risk are prioritized. You are eligible for a later phase of vaccination distribution. We will send you an email when we’re ready for you to schedule an appointment. While we work to distribute vaccines quickly and safely, please remember to wear a mask, wash your hands regularly, and practice social distancing. For more on preventing the spread of COVID-19, visit

Thus, the state website erroneously tells a 70 year that the 70 year is eligible for A LATER PHASE of vaccine distribution.

On Wednesday, February 10, 2021, it was announced that Governor Murphy was self-quarantining after an unidentified family member tested positive for Covid.[Courier-News, page 6A, February 11, 2021]
