Updated COVID Vaccine Site List In Hudson County

HUDSON COUNTY, NJ – New Jersey has been expanding the number of publicly listed COVID-19 vaccination sites, and the state continues to announce new locations in Hudson County and elsewhere.

The state has provided a list of vaccine sites in Hudson County. Some are accepting appointments directly, but some area not (see the Hudson County area list of vaccine sites below). Some towns have additional sites and lists for their residents.

Health Commissioner Judith Persichilli said the state plans to increase the number of vaccination sites beyond 300. State officials have said the goal is to vaccinate 70 percent of the adult population by the spring.

Gov. Phil Murphy announced that New Jersey has created a county-by-county vaccine hub that reports the number of immunizations across the state.

"We're working strategically and efficiently to vaccinate our frontline health care workers, law enforcement and fire professionals and long-term care center residents and staff," he said.

Health officials said not all sites are publicly listed because some are not open to the public, such as prisons and psychiatric hospitals.

Persichilli said New Jersey currently doesn't have a lot of vaccine availability, but she expects that to change soon. The incoming Biden presidential administration has said that it plans to greatly expand the number of vaccine doses available to the American public.

New Jersey recently expanded the list of eligible people, allowing police and fire professionals and people older than 65 to get the vaccine. Read more: NJ Expands COVID Vaccine To 65 & Older, Those With Medical Issues

Persichilli said the state has administered at least 36 percent of vaccine doses allocated. Hospitals have administered vaccines at least 50 percent of their health care workers.

Her hope is to continue to expand the number of "mega-sites" in convention centers and large spaces, aiming for 1,000 people vaccinated a day.

Other information

Hoboken has also been creating its own registration lists, focusing first on seniors. Read more here.

Many of the sites use Messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccines, a new type of vaccine that doesn't include the weakened virus, but teaches human cells to make a protein that triggers the immune response (read more about that here).

Gov. Phil Murphy reportedly said last week that he'd like to start vaccinating the general public by Memorial Day.

Here is a link to see the updated list of people eligible in New Jersey.

As of Friday, more than 412,000 Americans had died of the virus. (You can see which states had the highest death toll in the past week on this CDC map.)
