Where can I get a vaccine in Monmouth County?

Monmouth County operates a vaccine site at the Monmouth County Agricultural Building in Freehold and in partnership with Monmouth Medical Center at Brookdale Community College in Lincroft. Monmouth County also partners with the Parker Health Clinic in Red Bank and the Second Baptist Church of Asbury Park to provide vaccines at their respective locations. In addition, the other locations offering vaccines in Monmouth County are listed below.

Am I eligible to receive a vaccine?

As of Monday, April 19th, all individuals aged 16 and older are eligible for vaccination. However, Monmouth County sites only have Modern vaccines available, therefore you must be 18 or older if you go to a County run site.

How can I make an appointment for a vaccine?

The Brookdale Community College vaccination site is a walk-up facility where no appointment is necessary. The vaccination site is open for walk-ins on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to noon. If you would still like to schedule an appointment at Monmouth County’s Brookdale Community College site, go to www.visitmonmouth.com/health to use the online scheduling system.

Appointments at all other Monmouth County sites, including the Parker Health Clinic and Second Baptist Church of Asbury Park, must be made directly with those locations.

What happens to residents currently on the Monmouth County waitlist now that the online scheduling system is open?

Residents who are currently on the Monmouth County waiting list will be called when an appointment becomes available. Appointments are being reserved at both the Monmouth County Agricultural Building and Brookdale Community College for those on the waiting list.

Why doesn't Monmouth County have a mega site?

The mega sites are established by the State of New Jersey. All vaccines distributed at the mega sites are provided directly by the State.

What are the County Commissioners doing to help Monmouth County residents get vaccines?

The Commissioners have offered multiple ways to receive a vaccine. The Brookdale Community College vaccination site is a walk-up facility where no appointment is necessary. The vaccination site is open for walk-ins on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to noon.  If you would still like to schedule an appointment at Monmouth County’s Brookdale Community College site, go to www.visitmonmouth.com/health to use the online scheduling system.

Appointments at all other Monmouth County sites, including the Parker Health Clinic and Second Baptist Church of Asbury Park, must be made directly with those locations.

All seniors and individuals with a disability who have appointments for vaccines can elect to be driven by the Monmouth County Division of Transportation to the vaccination site by calling them at 732-431-6480, option 1. This service is available during normal operating hours of 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

What are the costs associated with getting the vaccine?

There is no cost to get vaccinated at the two sites operated by Monmouth County. Regardless of location, no one should be charged for the vaccine itself. Some independent providers are requesting insurance information to cover cost associated with administering the vaccine, so check with them directly if you have additional questions.

Are the vaccines effective?

Many people have questions about the effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines.

Getting a vaccine is a very personal consideration. If you have questions about vaccine safety or effectiveness, it is best to speak with your doctor. Remember, before any vaccine is approved for use in the United States, it must meet or exceed FDA thresholds to be considered effective. This is true for the COVID-19 vaccines already approved, and it is true for vaccines that are awaiting FDA review and approval.
