Transportation to dedicated Essex County vaccine site available for those 55 and older
Essex County is now providing transportation to a dedicated vaccination site at the Steven Adubato Sports Complex in Branchbrook Park, Newark for county residents age 55 years and older.
The program is open to Montclair residents. Transportation arrangements are made when scheduling a vaccination appointment.
County transportation to the complex had been announced earlier for those 65 and older. The county was initially administering Johnson & Johnson's one-dose vaccine at the site, but all state sites have paused use of the J&J vaccine while health authorities explore rare reports of blood clots. The county is now administering the Moderna vaccine at all of its distribution sites.
The Moderna vaccine requires two doses. The second dose and transportation will be automatically scheduled when registering.
Essex County vehicles are wheelchair accessible.
To use the Steven Adubato Sports Complex vaccination site, a resident must be transported by either a township or county vehicle. To schedule a vaccination appointment and make arrangements for transportation services, call the Montclair Health Department at 973-509-4970.
