Mayor Jimmy Davis announced that Bespoke Health, a private healthcare company that specializes in vaccine operations, will start administering the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) vaccine on Wednesday, April 14, at 9:00 a.m. in the Bayonne High School Ice Rink. Based on the city’s current allocations, Bespoke Health will begin with administering the Moderna vaccine next week.

Mayor Davis said, “The City of Bayonne has invited Bespoke Health to our community, in order to vaccinate more Bayonne residents and offer additional choices to local healthcare consumers.” He continued, “We look forward to working with Bespoke Health to improve Bayonne’s vaccination rate at this crucial time.”
