Holy Name Medical Center has partnered with the Township of Teaneck to convert the Rodda Community Center into a large-scale vaccination center. Teaneck's generosity in providing this ideal community resource for such an endeavor is unprecedented and will assist all of northern New Jersey in gaining access to the COVID-19 vaccine more efficiently and conveniently.

From the moment this site was launched, we were able to successfully demonstrate our ability to accommodate a high volume of vaccinations and, as a result, the State of NJ has promised a more consistent, high-volume flow of vaccine shipments to our site.

As many of you may know, Holy Name designed its own unique software to facilitate the complex operations related to scheduling appointments and managing the vaccine itself. The feedback we received on the first version of that software was not optimal and left many feeling anxious and desperate, having lost appointment slots to those who were able to complete the registration process faster.

Now, with a more consistent flow of vaccine shipments on the horizon, we have launched a new website that will remain open so that everyone can complete their registration information at their own pace.

Please note the new process:

Register Online. Log into and complete the registration form. Once registered, you will be placed in a queue.

As we receive vaccine, we will send scheduling links via email and text to those in the completed registration queue. We will send links only to those we 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.

Please be aware, walk-ins will not be accepted. We carefully map each dose of vaccine to each preregistered recipient.

We anticipate having the Rodda Center open and vaccinating both first dose and second dose individuals on Saturday, February 6; Sunday, February 7; and Monday, February 8, 2021.

We hope this new system of ongoing registration and scheduling will relieve some of the anxiety associated with the urgency of vaccinating as many people as possible.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding, and we look forward to seeing you at the Rodda Center.
