The CMAP Vaccine Navigators program was born during the height of the pandemic out of a commitment to help older adults in our community, many of whom were struggling to navigate the vaccine scheduling process, to secure appointments and receive their Covid-19 vaccine. In the spring of 2023, with the support of the National Council on Aging, we reignited this initiative with renewed focus on supporting the overall vaccine health of older adults in our community.

Let us be your Vaccine Navigators
CMAP has always been committed to providing older adults with the tools they need to thrive in every aspect of their lives—and their health. To underscore this commitment, we launched our Vaccine Navigators program early in 2021. The program deployed volunteers to assist nearly 1,000 older adults in navigating the complexities of the vaccine scheduling system.
In 2023, CMAP received a significant Community Action Grant to revive its effective Vaccine Navigator Program to focus on vaccine health among older adults in the greater Princeton area.
This newly revised Vaccine Navigator program will re-deploy volunteers to engage one-on-one with past clients, as well as direct contact with other community residents, to encourage a healthy vaccination regimen. While the original program was primarily focused on helping to get as many of the older population vaccinated against Covid-19, the re-launched program also includes help with scheduling influenza, pneumonia and shingles vaccines. The program will also offer community health events, vaccine clinics, and other supportive services. The Vaccine Navigator program is currently slated to run through June 2024.

With the approval of the new Covid-19 vaccine, there is an online tool to search for providers in your area. Remember that with the commercialization of the Covid-19 vaccine, it is no longer free. Therefore, the vaccine is available at no cost for people who have private health insurance, Medicare or Medicaid.
The Bridge Access Program is available for adults eighteen years old and older without health insurance or whose health insurance plans do not cover the Covid-19 vaccine. This program provides the vaccine at no cost. The online vaccine search tool allows you to search for Bridge Access Program participating locations.
