“According to experts at the CDC and FDA, the pediatric vaccine is safe and effective at preventing severe illness and hospitalization in children due to COVID-19,” Mayor Ravi Bhalla said in a statement.

“By getting your child vaccinated, you will help curtail the spread of COVID-19, limit transmission of the virus within our community, and help increase the likelihood that your child’s education continues in-person and is uninterrupted. As the holidays approach and we seek to gather with loved ones, being vaccinated is the best way to protect yourself and your family. I encourage all those, including our youth, to get vaccinated as quickly as possible.”

The Hoboken Health Department and Medicine Man Pharmacy & Compounding will host vaccine clinics on Monday, November 8th, and Tuesday, November 9th, at 605 Jackson St. from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. in which children between the ages of five and 11 can, for the first time, receive their Pfizer pediatric COVID-19 vaccine.

This clinic will also offer vaccines for those over the age of 12 and booster shots for eligible individuals.

Appointments are required, and they can be booked online here. Those seeking a booster shot must also bring their vaccine card.

The city will schedule vaccine clinics on additional days next week once the Hoboken Health Department receives an additional supply of vaccines, scheduled to arrive on Wednesday, November 10th.

The city had intended to host a vaccine clinic on Saturday, November 6th, at Wallace Elementary School, but the clinic has been cancelled as the city will not receive its supply of pediatric COVID-19 vaccines in time.

Future pop-up pediatric vaccine clinics will be scheduled during upcoming weekends in the near future.

“Since the first vaccines became available, the City and the Hoboken Health Department have worked hard to provide them to our residents and community members as promptly as possible,” added Health and Human Services Director Leo Pellegrini.

“That diligence has not wavered, and we will continue to ensure that all those eligible, including our children between 5 and 11 years old, have access to a COVID-19 vaccine or test through our clinics and provider partnerships.”

Hoboken continues to offer COVID-19 testing with local providers several days per week at 605 Jackson St.

    • Oh, you linked to some rando’s sub stack. To think my kids were gonna get vaccinated and then you provided some random kook’s beliefs and now I am impressed.

      I guess I could look at the millions and millions of Americans who have benefited from this amazing vaccine or believe you and some kook. Whatever will I do???

      • Show the data and need for children to be useless guinea pigs.
        We’ll wait.

        Dr. Robert Malone shares this important reference point on the savagery of using children as guinea pigs for nothing with a UK medical assessment on the “significant uncertainties.”


        Of course, these braindead anonymous cowards insist you must surrender your parental rights and subject your kids to the experimental jab. After all, what could go wrong, a little myocarditis, cancer, immune suppression and death. It’s all worth it even as your healthy children are fully safe with a strong immune system.

        Don’t think, just obey. Listen to the anti-science!

          • The only death cult I know of is where children are being told to take a drug they don’t need for a virus they have natural protection.

            You’re gang is brave, Ravi’s gang doesn’t even list their names. At least go ahead and post up pictures of Ravi’s kids being subjected to the Big Pharma/CDC experiment. Then at least we can weep for them too.

            The NY Times should stick to pushing Russia Collusion Coups and attacking the First Amendment coordinated with the occupant of the White House’s KGB. No one with an operating brain cell cares about their lies.

            It’s you slavish leftists who are demanding other people put up their children for Big Pharma’s profits for their completely unnecessary experiment. Total filth.

          • Josh and the Lyme Jockey demand to know the names of everyone whose real children are getting vaccinated! J & the LJ feel this cohort will create undue peer pressure on their imaginary children to get vaccinated! Someone has to take a stand against the bullying of imaginary children! But Josh and the Lyme Jockey will need to be at full strength for this important basement crusade. So first it’s time for eatin’ SpaghettiOs, drinkin’ chocolate milk, watchin’ Fox News, and believin’ people care what they think.

          • Why don’t these Ravibots put up their children as the guinea pigs first? Then we’ll track them next month, next year and thereafter. They only care to that you follow Ravi’s orders. If your child dies, they don’t care.

      • “CDC Scientists admit they did manipulate study data to show the Covid-19 Vaccines are safe for Pregnant Women as researchers discover 91% of pregnancies resulted in miscarriage following Covid-19 Vaccination.”


        Surely, if data had been manipulated by scientists carrying out a real world study for the CDC to show that Covid-19 vaccines were safe for use during pregnancy; it’s okay. No, well too late the babies die.

        Surely, it’s “safe and effective” for kids if not babies.

      • In California, Gavin Newsome has not been seen since he told the Moderna vax. He’s rumored to be MIA because he’s been damaged and now has Guillain–Barré syndrome (GBS).

        Some of you evil people here wishing harm to others. Well, now more truth comes out. Sad.

        • Josh and the Lyme Jockey are bringin’ the magic! Right before your very eyes they went from circulating a completely unsupported rumor to claiming it was the truth coming out! How did it transition from baseless rumor to established fact? It just did! Shades of the equally well-documented terror flier evidence. Impressive!

          Their source is incontrovertible. Alex Jones was the first one to tell the world the massacre at Sandy Hook was staged. And he’s right about this too!

          Let’s be honest, you can only rearrange the lawn chairs in the cozy basement so many times before you need to find other amusements. Even helping the imaginary kids with their imaginary homework gets old. So what’s one more conspiracy theory passed off as fact? Vice President JFK Jr would agree!

          It will give them something new and exciting to talk about tonight while they’re eatin’ SpaghettiOs, drinkin’ chocolate milk, watchin’ Fox News, and believin’ people care what they think.

  1. When I want to examine a risky, medical experiment, I always listen to Ravi’s operatives here who tell me to surrender my kids. It’s a worthy sacrifice.

    So why aren’t they using their real names and putting up their own kids?

    The CDC won’t even state what percentage of their workers have taken the jab. I wonder why?

      • Yeah, tell us how many CDC employees got the jab? Why is the CDA head unable to give an answer beyond “we’re educating them?”

        Utter fools here spreading evil. Protect your kids. They are healthy and immune to the CCP virus. FACT!

        • Josh and the Lyme Jockey demand more invasive authoritarian control from government before the invasive authoritarians take over!

          Director of CDC Rochelle Walensky did not give a percentage, noting that CDC employees can voluntarily report their vaccinated status, but that it is not required by the Federal Government. “So we do not know,” she said.


          Nonsense! Josh and the Lyme Jockey rise from their lawn chairs and shriek so loud you can almost but not quite hear it at street level above their cozy basement.

          Force them to tell us what they aren’t legally required to tell us! they cry!

          FACT: Ravi is planning to make all children who are not vaccinated wear a terror flier!

          FACT: Josh and the Lyme Jockey will not stand for it!

          Their cozy basement is abuzz with activity, motivated only by the best interests of their imaginary children, Biff and Sondra, whose adoring imaginary pictures hang on the wall. Biff is a star athlete and Sondra hops to become a cosmetologist. As it should be!

          You’ve gone and done it this time! You infuriated the Imaginary Basement-Dwelling Parents of the Year! They will deal with you presently. As soon as they’re done eatin’ SpaghettiOs, drinkin’ chocolate milk, watchin’ Fox News, and believin’ people care what they think.
