Bayonne Setting Up COVID Vaccine Site at Community Museum

City of Bayonne to Set Up Additional Vaccine Site at Museum on Wednesday, March 17

Mayor Jimmy Davis announced on Friday that the City of Bayonne is setting up an additional site for the Coronavirus vaccine at the Bayonne Community Museum, which is located at 9th Street and Broadway.  Vaccinations will start at that location by appointment only on Wednesday, March 17.

Mayor Davis stated, “The goal of opening the museum building as a major vaccination center is to double Bayonne’s vaccination capacity each week. Having this additional location will help us achieve the goal of vaccinating the majority of our adult residents.”

During the first week, vaccinations will take place on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.  After that, vaccinations at that site will take place on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  The schedule will be adjusted as needed as the vaccine supply increases.

The City of Bayonne is contracting with Mobile Health, a New York-based company, to administer a major portion of the local vaccination program.

For anyone who has registered for vaccinations via the City of Bayonne phone system or email registration, you don’t need to do anything else.  One of the City of Bayonne schedulers will be calling you.  For anyone new who wants to register for vaccinations, please go to http://bayonne.mhonsite.com.

Please note that you are not eligible to be vaccinated if you have had COVID-19 in the past 90 days.  Also, the Bayonne Medical Center and Museum sites are for Bayonne residents and Bayonne Board of Education employees only.

Mobile Health has several locations in New York.  The company administers vaccines and employee health services for various employers.
