Vaccine appointments on first-come, first-serve basis in Hoboken

×

The Hoboken Health Department now allows residents and employees of Hoboken businesses to sign up for a COVID-19 vaccine appointment on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Residents can book an appointment at the time and day of their choosing to make getting a vaccine more convenient. Previously, the city would collect names on a preregistration list and then book appointments.

According to the city, 265 appointments are available through CarePoint on Wednesday, May 5, at Hoboken University Medical Center. The entrance is on Clinton Street between Third Street and Fourth Street.

To sign up for an appointment, visit www.hobokennj.gov/vaccinesignup.

If residents or employees of Hoboken businesses do not have internet access, they can leave a message providing contact information and an address with the Hoboken Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) at 201-420-5621. A member of CERT will call back to assist with an appointment.

β€œGetting vaccinated will not only protect your friends, family, and neighbors but also help us return to normal as a community,” said Mayor Ravi Bhalla.Β  “I encourage everyone who has not yet been vaccinated to schedule an appointment as soon as conveniently possible through the Hoboken Health Department.”
