VNA Offering Vaccination Appointments to New Jersey Cancer Patients

Collaboration will provide vaccine opportunity for Memorial Sloan Kettering patients who reside in New Jersey

 

Asbury Park, NJ (April 13, 2021)-The VNA of Central Jersey Community Health Centers (VNACJ-CHC) is collaborating with Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) to administer a limited number of COVID-19 vaccines to eligible MSK patients over the course of the next few weeks, Christopher Rinn, CEO of VNACJ-CHC announced.

 

“The VNA of Central Jersey Community Health Centers is honored to work with MSK to help facilitate vaccinations for their cancer patients,” Rinn said.

 

“We are grateful for the support of the Visiting Nurses Association of Central Jersey to help expedite vaccinations for MSK patients who live in New Jersey,” said Cynthia McCollum, Senior Vice President of Hospital Administration at MSK.

 

All VNA CHC patients are being scheduled for the Moderna vaccine. The VNA Community Health Center has suspended distribution of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine per CDC and FDA guidance.

 

MSK staff members are working with eligible patients to assist them in making appointments. MSK patients can also call their MSK physician’s office for the online registration link that has been created especially for this program. Once registration is complete, the VNACJ-CHC will contact the patient to schedule an appointment. All vaccine appointments will be held at VNACJ-CHC locations in Monmouth County.
