The Hazlet Township COVID-19 vaccine sign-up for those over 65 is having an impact! On March 19, 80 elderly residents of Bethany Towers in Hazlet received the J & J vaccine, thanks to the VNA. Others who signed up on the township list in the first wave in early March have begun to receive calls from Hackensack Meridian Health nurses for appointments at Bayshore Hospital, as early as Tuesday.
Please be patient if you have not gotten a call yet, your turn is coming! As of today, Hazlet Township has submitted the names of 794 residents over 65 years of age to the schedulers.
"Please think of seniors in town who may not have gotten the word and let them know they can sign up on our website," said Mayor Tara Clark. Here is the link for Hazlet residents.
