The Hudson County Vaccine Distribution Center has now administered over 12,985 COVID-19 vaccinations and once again used 100 percent of its allocated vaccines for the past week.
As of Friday, 1,634 individuals received their first dose of the vaccine while an additional 1,343 second doses were administered.
To date, 10,441 first doses have been administered and 2,544 individuals have been fully inoculated.
In an effort to continue urging residents to receive the COVID-19, Hudson County will also launch an outreach and education plan to encourage residents to schedule an appointment as they become eligible.
“The Hudson County Vaccine Distribution Center is a well oiled machine providing, operating efficiently and effectively to inoculate as many individuals as vaccines received each week,” said Hudson County Executive Tom DeGise.
“By working with the Hudson Regional Health Commission and our municipal partners we’ve made tremendous progress in building safer and healthier communities, but our work is far from over. Hudson County is committed to educating, informing and providing everyone with the resources necessary to know this vaccine is safe and saves lives.”
This week, the county-run site will administer 500 first doses and 2,847 second doses.
The center at 110 Hackensack Ave. in Kearny is open by appointment only to Hudson County residents and those who work in Hudson County.
