Late Evening and Weekend Times Available Next Week to Accommodate Work and School Schedules
Trenton, N.J. - Mayor W. Reed Gusciora today announced that the City of Trenton Department of Health and Human Services will operate another walk-in vaccine clinic at El Centro – Catholic Diocese of Trenton at 327 S Broad St this Sunday, April 25, 2021 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
In order to make the vaccine more accessible to individuals who cannot take off from work, the City will also be hosting walk-in vaccine clinics next Thursday, April 29, 2021 and Friday, April 30, 2021 from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. There will also be a full-day vaccine clinic at Trenton Fire Headquarters on 244 Perry St on May 1, 2021 from 9:00 a.m. through 3:00 p.m.
Each clinic will administer 500 Moderna vaccines for Trenton residents, age 18 and older. The lines will be outside, so residents should dress appropriately just in case there are wait times.
The City is also continuing its homebound vaccination campaign for Trenton residents who are unable to get to a clinic on their own. Homebound residents or their relatives can call (609) 815-2556 or email email@example.com to schedule an in-home vaccine appointment. City medical staff will wait 15 to 30 minutes with each patient after administering the vaccine to monitor for side effects.
“Thankfully, we can continue our walk-in vaccine clinics into the weekend with another 500 Moderna vaccines available at El Centro this Sunday,” said Mayor Gusciora. “We appreciate Executive Director Roberto Hernandez’s help in arranging another ideal location that will make it easy for hundreds of Trentonians to get protected from COVID-19.”
The City just wrapped up a four-day campaign that brought 2000 vaccines to Trenton schools located in all four wards.
The city’s ongoing vaccination efforts are made possible by continuous support from the Trenton Health Team, the Henry J. Austin Medical Center, the Mercer County Board of Social Services, Trenton Housing Authority, Mercer County Meals on Wheels and the Trenton Council of Civic Associations.
As always, all residents interested in the vaccine should reserve a spot at the state portal at covidvaccine.nj.gov and contact the City Department of Health at (609)-989-3242 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
