Hudson County vaccine site open on a Saturday so kids don’t miss school

Hudson County will open its vaccination center in Kearny on Saturday, May 15, to administer the Pfizer vaccine to anyone 12 or older who lives, works, or studies in Hudson County.

The decision to add an additional vaccination day this week comes after federal guidelines were updated to allow children as young as 12 to receive the vaccine. Saturday allows the children to get vaccinated without missing school.

The site at 110 Hackensack Ave. in Kearny currently has 150 appointments open between 9:30 and 11 a.m. on Saturday and an additional 1,200 Pfizer doses available on Monday, May 17.

Anyone who still needs to be vaccinated can schedule an appointment at hudsoncovidvax.org.

“Expanding eligibility of the Pfizer vaccine for younger populations is another big step forward in our fight against COVID-19,” said Hudson County Executive Tom DeGise. “We are working to make this vaccine more easily available to students by offering weekend vaccinations at our county-run site so they do not miss classroom time. I encourage anyone who lives, works, or studies in Hudson County who has not yet been vaccinated to trust the science and schedule an appointment today.”
