Several Independent Colleges offering COVID Vaccines to local community

May 5, 2021

Bloomfield College

COVID-19 vaccinations were made available to the Bloomfield College community thanks to Bloomfield Township and Essex County. Registration was set by May 4th, and the pop-up vaccination location will be held at Watessing Community Centr on Wednesday May 12 from 930 to 2pm.

Open to residents 18 and older.  Moderna and J&J will be offered.  Another clinic will be held on Wednesday May 19th from 930 to 2pm.  Free of charge.  You can get the vaccine if you are uninsured, underinsured, or undocumented. Registration is required.

Georgian Court University

Georgian Court University is partnering with Walmart for a pop-up COVID-19 vaccine clinic on campus on Monday, May 10, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. (and possibly later if demand is there). We are offering both the Moderna and the J&J vaccines to students, faculty, staff, and the surrounding community. (We’ll have a follow-up date in one month for the second Moderna shot.)

The clinic will assist us in getting students vaccinated–our resident students will be required to be vaccinated at least 14 days before fall move-in. In addition, the vaccination numbers in Lakewood are low, so the Ocean County Health Department is attempting to saturate Lakewood’s vulnerable Latino communities with access to the vaccine.

President Marbach will be receiving the first vaccine of the day, and GCU nursing students will be on hand to assist with the clinic.

Saint Elizabeth and Drew University:

Saint Elizabeth University partnered with Drew University (the Universities are in close proximity to each other) and both use Bergen New Bridge Medical Center for testing) on a clinic hosted at Simon Forum (Drew University campus) that included Saint Elizabeth University students, faculty, staff and employees of companies on campus. First shot was April 23; second scheduled for May 23. The clinic offered the Moderna vaccine.
