Today we attended a media walk though of the first Hudson County Vaccine Distribution Center in Kearny.
The walk through was be led by Hudson Regional Health Commission Executive Director Carrie Nawrocki, who is working to oversee the Vaccination Center as part of the County Executive’s Vaccine Task Force.
Hudson County will open its first COVID-19 vaccination site at the USS Juneau Center, Office of Emergency Management in Kearny beginning next week, Hudson County Executive Tom DeGise announced today. The vaccination center will be operated by the Hudson Regional Health Commission and overseen by the newly established Hudson County Vaccine Task Force, which the County Executive will utilize to coordinate vaccine response across several different county departments and autonomous agencies as well as the community at large. At the same time, the county will continue offering robust COVID-19 testing through its partnership with Hudson Regional Hospital in Secaucus.
