While the site, located at 110 Hackensack Ave., has been a drive-through site only throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, walk-through patients will also be accepted for those seeking the monkeypox vaccine.

The clinic times are as from 8 a.m. through 12 noon on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, and then from 10 a.m. through 1 p.m. on Saturday.

Only New Jersey residents are eligible to receive a monkeypox vaccine at this site, while eligibility also includes those individuals who may have attended an event where there was a known case of monkeypox in the last 14 days.

Other eligible individuals include those who identify as gay, bisexual, transgender, gender non-conforming, and/or gender non-binary, and those who have a history of multiple or anonymous sexual partners within the past 14 days.

Although appointments are not necessary, they are encouraged. To make an appointment, or for more information, please click here.
