ESSEX COUNTY, NJ — Workers and volunteers at the Essex County vaccination sites say they may not be open too much longer. It is still unclear what date this may occur and if sites will be consolidated into one another or close in totality. However, workers and volunteers are said to have been cut back and asked to prepare for closure. 

Meanwhile, state vaccine sites have opened access to anyone who wants to be vaccinated, no appointment necessary. 

Currently, the vaccines being administered do not require insurance and are free. If the sites shut down, questions around roll-out and access to the vaccines is all to be determined.
