The Vaccination Portal is now live and will remain open so everyone can complete their registration completely and accurately at their own pace. What to expect when your registration is completed:

You will be placed into a queue. As Holy Name receives vaccine, they will send scheduling links via email and text to those in the completed registration queue.

They will send links only to those they can accommodate, based on available vaccine.

Each registered individual will receive a unique code that is not transferable and can be used only once within 24 hours of receipt.

This code will enable the recipient to select the date and time slot most convenient for their schedule.

We look forward to seeing you at the Rodda Community Center for your vaccine.

HOW TO VERIFY YOUR REGISTRATION
  • Please rely on e-mail as your primary source of registration confirmation. SMS text messages may be delayed by the carriers.
  • Please check your junk mail folder.
  • You will receive a 5-digit verification code. Please enter this code into your computer browser to complete registration. You will need to click to the right of the text on the screen that reads "Your Verification Code" to successfully enter your code.
  • You will then receive an email and SMS text message confirming your registration.
IF YOU DID NOT RECEIVE A VERIFICATION CODE VIA SMS TEXT OR EMAIL
  • Please check your mail junk folder.
  • If you have still not received a code, please refresh your browser and complete the registration form again.
  • Once your registration is confirmed, you will be placed in a queue. You will receive an invitation to schedule an appointment once vaccine becomes available.
  • This queue does not operate on a first come, first served basis. Criteria are being carefully evaluated to ensure appropriate and adequate access to the vaccine.
  • Everyone will be offered an opportunity to be vaccinated as more vaccine becomes available. Thank you for your understanding and patience.
IF YOU RECEIVE AN "INCOMPLETE FORM" NOTIFICATION
  • As you begin to complete each section of the address field, options will appear. Click on the correct option before moving on to the next section of your address. (For example: If you type Teaneck into the City section, wait for Teaneck to generate in that field, and then select Teaneck.)
