Hoboken Mayor Ravi Bhalla is urging residents to kept their COVID-19 booster and flu shot ahead of Thanksgiving on November 24th, with a local clinic available on Tuesday.
“As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday and gather indoors with friends and family, I encourage everyone to take the steps we know will help keep us safe: get the updated booster and seasonal flu shot,” Bhalla said in a statement.
“Thank you to Medicine Man Pharmacy & Compounding for the continued partnership to host these clinics for our residents.”
The clinic will be held on Tuesday, November 15th, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at 605 Jackson St. Eligible residents may elect to receive either one of or both the updated COVID-19 booster and the seasonal flu vaccine at the clinic.
The clinic will provide updated COVID-19 boosters to eligible individuals 5 years old and older who received their COVID-19 vaccine or booster at least two months ago.
The updated boosters protect against both the original COVID-19 virus and the Omicron variants. Residents 5 years old and older will also have the option to receive the seasonal flu vaccine.

Residents will need to book two separate appointments if they want both the flu vaccine and the updated booster, but Medicine Man Pharmacy & Compounding will administer both shots at the same time during either appointment time.
