Hoboken is opening a number of pop-up COVID-19 vaccine booster clinics at senior buildings this week for those eligible to receive a fourth dose, following federal regulatory approval last week.

The Health Department and Hoboken Family Pharmacy will be offering Pfizer and Moderna booster shots for those eligible, including those immuno-compromised and those over 50-years-old who received their last booster shot at least four months ago.

β€œIt is critical that we continue to ensure that our most vulnerable residents have access to this additional booster dose to increase their protection against severe COVID-19 symptoms,” said Mayor Ravi Bhalla in a statement. β€œI encourage all those eligible to go and get their second booster dose as soon as possible.”

The schedule is as follows:

  • Monday, April 4, Marion Towers at 400 First Street from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
