The clinic will be set up between 31st and 32nd Streets between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. with individuals having the option to be vaccinated with either the Johnson and Johnson or Moderna vaccine.

“Since becoming more readily available, Hudson County has worked closely with our municipal partners to ensure this lifesaving vaccine is easily accessible to all of our residents,” Hudson County Executive Tom DeGise said in a statement.

“Whether that means setting up vaccination clinics in our county parks or arranging vaccination opportunities with local community groups, we are going to continue our efforts to get Hudson vaccinated by any means possible. I thank Mayor Stack for his partnership and remind everyone to trust the science and do their part to put an end to this pandemic.”

The clinic will be set up in the street and drivers are encouraged to plan an alternate route if they plan to travel in the area. Additionally, the County will have both English and Spanish speaking representatives onsite to assist individuals with the vaccination process.

“This Saturday we are bringing the COVID-19 vaccine to the most heavily foot traveled section of our City to conveniently get as many residents vaccinated as possible,” added state Senator (D-33)/Union City Mayor Brian Stack.

“This vaccine is free and safe for everyone, regardless if you are undocumented or without insurance. My office is available to address the concerns of any residents and myself, along with our Commissioners, thank Hudson County for helping spearhead this effort.”

The county continues to operate its drive thru vaccination clinic at the USS Juneau Center in Kearny.

Anyone who lives, works or studies in Hudson County and is over the age of 12 who has not yet been vaccinated is encouraged to schedule an appointment today by visiting hudsoncovidvax.org.

  1. Glad this finally exists, but it took months of people calling DeGise’s office and the Comissioners to get a county run site that serves both North Hudson and those that don’t have cars. This should’ve been implemented alongside the County run site.
