COVID Vaccine In New Jersey: Vaccination Clinic For Children Ages 12 And Up Opens In Hoboken

HOBOKEN, N.J. (CBSNewYork) -- Hoboken has expanded vaccine access for residents ages 12 and up.

The vaccine clinic with Medicine Man Pharmacy and the city Health Department opened Saturday on Jackson Street, offering the two-dose Pfizer vaccine for the newly eligible age group.

It follows updated guidance from the FDA and emergency use approval for kids 12-15 years old.

There was one common theme among everyone who spoke to CBS2.

"Well, I think if I do it, I'll influence other people to also do it as well so that we can get back to normal," 13-year-old Caitlyn Powell said.

"Yeah, I was excited. I'm ready to go back to normal," another girl said.


The clinic for ages 12 and up will also be open Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, by appointment only.

Children ages 12-16 must be accompanied by a guardian.
