A Note From Mayor Parisi:

Hello.this is Mayor Robert Parisi.

All residents, ages 16 and over, are now eligible to receive the COVID 19 vaccine.  Please check out the Township's website at www.westorange.org for more details and go to essexcovid.org to schedule an appointment.

The Township of West Orange has two programs to assist residents with obtaining a COVID 19 vaccine.

 

First, the Essex County Pilot Program will schedule and transport Senior residents, ages 60 and over, to a Vaccine Center site located at the Stephen Adubato Sports Complex in Branch Brook Park, in Newark.

West Orange Senior Transportation program will provide door-to-door, round-trip service to the site.  Pick up and return will occur to and from each eligible resident's home.
Transportation and vaccines will be scheduled on a weekly basis, for Wednesday mornings.

 

Second, if you are a Homebound Resident (either bedbound or have difficulty leaving your home), you may be eligible to have a COVID vaccine administered at your residence.

The Township of West Orange has partnered with registered nurses from Montclair State University School of Nursing to make this possible. 

Currently, the Moderna vaccine is being offered for both these programs.

To register for either program, please contact: 
Laura Van Dyke or Noelia Perez at 973-325-4105.

Call today to take advantage of these programs and schedule a vaccination.

Thank you.
