The vaccination center at the former Kmart building in West Orange is closed on Thursday, due to a power outage caused by Ida.

Essex County Executive Joseph DiVincenzo Jr. said people with appointments could come to the county’s vaccination center at Essex County College in Newark, or return to Kmart on Friday.
