BRICK TOWNSHIP — More pop-up vaccine clinics are coming to Brick Township, Mayor John Ducey said on Tuesday, less than two weeks after 600 Brick seniors received their COVID-19 vaccines at the Police Athletic League [PAL] building on Drum Point Road.

“We’ve made a concerted effort to get the vaccines to the over-65 residents of Brick,” the mayor told The Ocean Star in an email. “We had 600 vaccines at the end of March and we will be having another 200-vaccine event [for seniors] at the end of April.”

Mayor Ducey’s comments were prompted by a recent announcement from Gov. Phil Murphy, who stated all New Jersey residents age 16 and over will be eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine beginning April 19.

“The announcement of 16 and over is exciting, because this means that more vaccines are on the way from the federal government,” Mayor Ducey said. “With this announcement we will be working on a third event here for late April/early May for all ages.”
