City Council, in Partnership with Monmouth County, Announces Second Baptist Church Covid-19 Vaccination Site in Asbury Park Vaccine Administration to Begin Saturday, March 13, 2021 by Appointment Only
3/8/21, Asbury Park, NJ – City Council is pleased to announce Second Baptist Church, located at 124 Atkins Avenue, will serve as an additional Covid-19 vaccine administration site in Asbury Park. The vaccine site, created in partnership with Monmouth County, will open, by appointment only, from 2-4pm on Saturday, March 13, 2021 and Saturday, March 27, 2021. 100 Covid-19 vaccine doses will be administered on each date to residents currently eligible to receive the vaccine in the State of New Jersey. The by-appointment-only vaccine site is expected to run every other Saturday until further notice.
“At the end of January, I called Monmouth County Commissioner Director Thomas A. Arnone with a crazy idea for a vaccine site in Asbury Park and his response stunned me when he said he was working on a partnership in Red Bank and would love for Asbury Park to be next. I knew the Second Baptist Church and Pastor Vanzant were the perfect partners for this vaccine site,” said Mayor John Moor, “We could never thank the Board of Commissioners and Monmouth County enough for what they are doing for Asbury Park. And we are thrilled that the Second Baptist Church vaccination site will be distributing the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine which will mean “one and done” for our residents.”
“I am very happy to announce another community partnership, with the City of Asbury Park and Second Baptist Church of Asbury Park, to bring vaccines directly to our residents,” said Commissioner Director Thomas A. Arnone. “On Saturday, March 13th from 2 to 4 p.m., 100 vaccines will be given out at the Church by appointment only.”
“I am grateful as a representative and concerned citizen of the west side of Asbury Park to make this partnership possible,” said Pastor Vanzant, Second Baptist Church of Asbury Park. “I am grateful that this outlines the struggle of equality to all citizens to be able to have access and resources through this partnership. The partnership signifies a step to come together as people of Monmouth County, and everyone knows they matter not just through words, but through action.”
