“Expanding eligibility of the Pfizer vaccine for younger populations is another big step forward in our fight against COVID-19,” Hudson County Executive Tom DeGise said in a statement.

“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.”

The site currently has 150 appointments open between 9:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. on Saturday and an additional 1,200 Pfizer doses available on Monday.

Anyone who still needs to be vaccinated is encouraged to schedule an appointment today by visiting hudsoncovidvax.org.

Jersey City, Hoboken, and Bayonne have also all announced new vaccination opportunities for children between the ages of 12 and 15 after federal guidelines added them to those eligible this week.
