The township of Weehawken has announced the latest COVID vaccination statistics for the municipality, and local officials are thrilled with the numbers.
A press release from the township Council dated October 14, 2021 stated the following:
“Thanks to all of our efforts as a community, 82% of the Weehawken adult population has been fully vaccinated, and 92% has had at least one dose. Remarkably as per the New Jersey Department of health, 86% of Weehawken children aged 12-17 have been vaccinated. This is an excellent accomplishment by the entire Weehawken community working together. Special thanks to our Township Manager Giovanni Ahmad for implementing our vaccination program, our School Nurses, along with Weehawken EMS personnel, who volunteered to vaccinate our community, our Health Department, and the countless residents who assisted with our vaccination efforts.”
