WOODBRIDGE – Woodbridge Township is making H1N1 vaccine available for children aged 6 months to 5 years, pregnant women and students in non-public schools, Woodbridge Township Mayor John E. McCormac announced today.
Township residents who meet these eligibility criteria should contact the Health Center at 1-732-855-0600, ext. 5011 to schedule an appointment for vaccination. There is no charge for the vaccination.
Preschoolers and pregnant women are priority groups eligible to obtain a H1N1 vaccine, says Woodbridge Township Health Director Dennis Green. “The next priority is school-age children; since Woodbridge Township public schools are not in session the week of Nov. 2-6, we’re starting with non-public students.”
McCormac notes that the Health Department has a limited number of vaccine doses. “We have received 1,400 doses of the 14,000 ordered, and we expect more vaccine to arrive weekly. We plan to start the clinics for public schools when their classes resume Nov. 9-13.”
