Asbury Park, NJ, September 20, 2021–The VNA of Central Jersey Community Health Center (VNACJ- CHC) is moving its COVID-19 vaccine services into large community based locations in anticipation of increased demand for vaccines as the deadlines for many public and private employer mandates are approaching and as the FDA has signaled that it is likely to issue an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for “boosters” of the Pfizer vaccine for people aged 65 and older and those with serious health issues in the near future. The federally qualified community health center with primary care locations in Asbury Park, Freehold, Keyport and Red Bank, has administered over 86,000 vaccines since they became available late last year.
