Rahway - Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Rahway has teamed up with the Union County and Rahway Public Schools to provide a pop-up vaccine clinic on Wednesday, September 1 from 5 pm to 7 pm at the Rahway 7th & 8th Grade Academy.

In addition to free vaccine and Covid-19 testing, there will be free tacos for those vaccinated that day and a raffle of backpacks and school supplies, courtesy of RWJ Rahway employees.

“We want to encourage eligible students and parents, as well as school personnel to get vaccinated so we can have a great school year,” said Patricia Camp, PhD, Superintendent of Rahway Public Schools.

The pop-up clinic is open to all Rahway students 12 and older, school personnel, as well as the community at large.

The pop-up clinic comes as Gov. Phil Murphy on Monday announced that all teachers and school personnel in New Jersey receive the COVID-19 vaccine or receive regular testing for the virus. All school personnel from pre-K through 12th grade are to be fully vaccinated by Oct. 18 but can opt out and be tested once or twice a week for COVID-19.

The school-based vaccine clinic will offer the Pfizer-BioNTEch Vaccine, available to ages 12 and older. Second doses of the vaccine will be given September 22.

The clinic will also provide the single-shot J&J vaccine to those 18 and older.

Free saliva testing for Covid-19 is available with results in 24-48 hours.

Registration is not required for the clinic, but recommended. Call (908) 613-7829 or visit UCN.org/Covid19.

The Rahway 7th & 8th Grade Academy is located at 1139 Kline Place.

The Food and Drug Administration on Monday gave full federal approval to the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine for people 16 and older, lifting it out of the emergency-use category.
