Newark is bringing COVID-19 community vaccination sites to every ward across the city, for residents ages 18 years old and up starting Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., at Ivy Hill Park, located in the city’s West Ward, at 155 Mt. Vernon Place.
The city is hosting these vaccination pop-up sites in the neighborhoods to create greater access and ensure equity in vaccine distribution.
The Department of Health and Community Wellness staffers will administer the vaccines. Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines will be given out. Walk-ups are welcome, no registration required.
This is the first of a series of pop-up vaccination sites that will take place over the next several weeks, one in each ward.
