Pre-Registration Strongly Recommended
For Immediate Release – December 1, 2021
MIDDLETOWN, NJ – Middletown Township joined forces with the VNA of Central Jersey Community Health Center in September to provide booster shots for those who are eligible, as well as COVID-19 vaccines, at the Middletown Township Public Library (55 New Monmouth Road). VNACJ Community Health Center nurses will be administering Pfizer, Moderna, and J&J/Janssen booster shots in the Community Room at the library on Wednesdays from 10 AM to 5:30 PM for the remainder of 2021.
“As soon as the COVID-19 vaccine became available earlier this year, Middletown began its efforts to provide our residents with immediate access,” said Mayor Perry. “Our continued partnership with the VNACJ to provide the booster shot reaffirms our commitment to protecting the most vulnerable members of our community.”
People ages 12 and over who have yet to be vaccinated against COVID-19 are welcome to receive their first and second doses of the Pfizer vaccine at the library. The Moderna vaccine will be available for first and second doses for those over the age of 18. Vaccines for children ages 5-11 are not yet available at this location.
“We are honored to partner with Mayor Perry and the Township Committee, the Board of Health, and the staff and trustees of the Middletown Township Public Library, to protect the health of Middletown area residents against this deadly and persistent virus,” said Christopher Rinn, CEO of VNACJ Community Health Center, a federally qualified health center with four Monmouth County locations.
Appointments are not necessary to receive a vaccine at the library, but pre-registration is strongly recommended at www.middletownnj.org/vnacj. You do not need to be a Middletown resident in order to register for this clinic. Those seeking vaccines should bring their ID and insurance card if they have one. Those seeking boosters should also bring their vaccine card or the docket app on their phone. Face masks are mandatory at this vaccine clinic.
