Turtle Back Zoo COVID-19 Vaccination Event

As an incentive to get vaccinated, COVID-19 vaccinations will be given at Essex County Turtle Back Zoo and anyone who gets their first dose of a coronavirus vaccine at the “I Got Vaccinated at Turtle Back Zoo!” will receive a voucher for one free admission to the zoo.

This will be the second time the promotion will be held; on June 5, a total of 73 vaccines were administered.

It will be held on Saturday, June 26, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the zoo in the Essex County South Mountain Recreation Complex, 560 Northfield Avenue, West Orange.

Visitors are eligible to receive a voucher if they are receiving their first dose of the vaccine. The voucher can be used through September 1, 2021. No appointment is necessary. Pfizer and J&J vaccines will be administered. People ages 18 and older are eligible to receive the J&J vaccine. People ages 12 and older are eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccine. Visitors returning to receive their second dose of the vaccine are not eligible to receive free admission.

There is no out of pocket cost to receive the vaccine. However, if someone does have medical insurance, Essex County is allowed to bill the insurance carrier a $40 fee for each dose of the vaccine. If a visitor does not have medical insurance, the cost of the vaccine will be covered by the Health Resources and Services Administration's Provider Relief Fund.
