Walkup vaccinations available at Lincoln Park Saturday

The Hudson County Vaccine Task Force and Hudson County Improvement Authority will partner with the Jersey City Health Department to administer COVID-19 vaccines at Lincoln Park this Saturday, April 24.

The clinic will be open 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. near the West Side Avenue entrance or until supplies last.

Jersey City residents should bring a photo ID with them.

“This week we hit a new milestone in our vaccination efforts with all adults becoming eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine,” said Hudson County Executive Tom DeGise. “We are now taking our operations one step further by working closely with our municipal partners to offer more vaccine distribution options. We anticipate opening up additional mobile vaccination clinics throughout the county in the coming weeks.”

The Jersey City Health Department will be administering the Moderna vaccine and a second dose appointment will be scheduled onsite.

“Jersey City has worked tirelessly since day one of the pandemic to provide the necessary resources to keep our residents safe and healthy,” said Mayor Steven Fulop. “As an urban community, we understand the unique challenges we face in connecting individuals with vaccine appointments. By working with our county partners, we are bringing this vaccine directly into the community and eliminating some of the barriers that may have prevented some residents from getting vaccinated.”

The clinic will be offered at the HCIA’s annual Earth Day Celebration where residents can learn more about the HCIA and other county agencies.

Social distancing and masks required.

“Each year the Hudson County Improvement Authority aims to provide Hudson residents with the resources they need to live a more sustainable life at our Earth Day celebration,” said HCIA CEO Norman Guerra. “The Authority has been there to assist the County in its vaccination efforts since day one and we are incredibly proud to continue providing the necessary resources and infrastructure as we enter into the next phase of combating this virus.”
