Middlesex County has established six vaccine sites as New Jersey continues its statewide rollout of the COVID-19 vaccination.

These locations, in addition to the state-run Middlesex County Regional COVID-19 Vaccine Mega-Site located in Edison, are another step in providing the public with access to COVID-19 vaccination sites.

The expanded Middlesex County vaccine site locations include:

  • Community Arts Center, 720 Cranbury Road, East Brunswick
  • Monroe Township Senior Center, 12 Halsey Reed Road, Monroe
  • The Heldrich Hotel and Conference Center, 10 Livingston Ave., New Brunswick
  • Middlesex County Office of Health Services, 1 Ericsson Dr., Piscataway
  • Middlesex County Fire Academy, 1001 Fire Academy Dr., Sayreville
  • Middlesex County Vocational and Technical School, 21 Suttons Lane, Perth Amboy

Residents must have an appointment prior to visiting any location. Walk ins will not be permitted.

These vaccination sites will be open strictly based on vaccine supply to the county and residents will be eligible for vaccination based on the state’s phased approach, according to information provided by the Middlesex County Office of Communications.

“Throughout this global pandemic, Middlesex County has taken a multi-tiered approach to fighting this deadly virus, and our vaccine locations are a logical step” County Commissioner Director Ronald G. Rios said in the statement. “By opening more COVID-19 vaccine sites throughout the county, we can support the state in administering and dispensing the vaccine to all eligible residents efficiently.”

Middlesex County began administering and dispensing the preventative COVID-19 vaccine, developed by Moderna and approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for emergency use, to Phase 1A recipients in late December. Per the state’s priority guidelines for vaccination eligibility, the county is currently administering and dispensing the COVID-19 vaccine to qualified recipients in Phase 1A and part of Phase 1B.

Middlesex County is also the site of one of New Jersey’s six mega-site vaccination centers. The Middlesex County Regional COVID-19 Vaccine Mega-Site, located at the New Jersey Convention & Exposition Center, 97 Sunfield Ave., Edison, is equipped with 20 vaccination stations. The Mega-Site will be open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays. Administration of up to 2,400 COVID-19 vaccinations can occur at the site per day to qualified individuals as per the state’s priority guidelines, according to the statement.

Qualified individuals must pre-register online covid19.nj.gov for an appointment to receive the vaccine. Walk ins will not be permitted.

For more information and resources about COVID-19 and how to register for the vaccine, visit www.middlesexcountynj.gov/covid19. Individuals who cannot register online, or who have more detailed questions, should call the county’s Call Center at 732-745-3100.

Registrants of the vaccine will not have the option to select the vaccine maker of their choice; vaccines are strictly predicated on supply provided by the federal government, according to the statement.
