The City of Bayonne has administered about 82,000 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine to date, with around 72 percent of adult residents fully vaccinated.
The latest figures were released from the Bayonne Office of Emergency Management on Thursday, also noting that 38 residents are COVID-19 positive and just two are being treated at the Bayonne Medical Center.
“As each day passes, medical and scientific proof become clearer that the COVID-19 vaccine is the best way to protect us from serious illness, hospitalization, and even death,” Davis said during a Facebook Live update on the same day.
“I have directed out teams to continue to offer the vaccine at the Korpi Ice Rink, which we do three days a week. As we continue to receive guidance on the administration of booster shots, teams at the ice rink will provide those shots too as we remain committed to ensuring the highest level of protection for all of our residents.”
Third doses of Pfizer and Moderna are available to anyone 65 years and older and/or anyone who self identifies as moderately or severely immunocompromised.
Booster doses of Pfizer are available to anyone 65 years and older, 18-64 with underlying medical conditions and/or work in an at-risk occupational setting.
Those interested in a booster shot must wait at least six months since their second dose to be eligible and no documentation is needed to confirm medical status.
The ice rink, located behind Bayonne High School, will offer Pfizer shots on Tuesdays and Thursday between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m., with Moderna shots available on Wednesdays between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.
