Vaccine Community Connectors program
The health and well-being of our members remain our top priorities. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, every one of us at Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey (Horizon BCBSNJ) has been committed to being here for our members when they need us most.
As the COVID-19 vaccines become more readily available, it’s important that essential workers and those among us who are most vulnerable get access to the protection they need. That’s why we are proud to join the national effort, the Vaccine Community Connectors program, to vaccinate 2 million seniors living in the most vulnerable communities. Some of the actions that Horizon BCBSNJ and other health insurers across the country are focused on to achieve this goal include:
- Identifying members who are vulnerable to COVID-19 and who live in areas where vaccination rates are low.
- Working with partners in our communities to share information and help people understand that COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective.
- Helping members who are eligible to get a vaccine to register and schedule appointments, and coordinate services to help remove potential barriers to getting vaccinated, including transportation.
As the state's largest and most experienced health solutions leader, we're partnering with health care professionals and community leaders to keep our New Jersey seniors safe and healthy.
