COVID is still active in Woodbridge, wear a mask & social distance.


This is Woodbridge Mayor John McCormac and today is Friday, October 22.

After 10 weeks of averaging 142 cases from late July through September, Woodbridge had our third straight week under 100 with 98 new cases of Coronavirus in the Township. Most importantly, we had no new reported deaths, which is great news.

The Food and Drug Administration has authorized booster doses for Moderna and J&J to go along with Pfizer and they announced that vaccines could be used in a “mix and match” approach so you can now get any booster regardless of where your first shots came from.

Booster shots are available to anyone 65 and over and those under 65 with immune deficiencies.

The Township has vaccination clinics at our Health Center the next two Thursdays from 3:00 to 6:00 PM and we recommend booking an appointment due to an expected increase in demand by calling 732-855-0600 ext 5004. We also have the approved Pfizer vaccine for children 12 and over.
