covid vaccine trials

Montclair State University and the Essex County Department of Health will partner to host a free coronavirus vaccination clinic on Sept. 20.

Running from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the clinic will be open to the public, in addition to being available to all Montclair State University students, faculty and staff and their families.

All three approved vaccines will be available: the single-dose Johnson & Johnson shot, and the two-dose vaccines from Moderna and Pfizer. All three are options for anyone 18 and older, but only the Pfizer vaccine is approved for peopleaged 12 to 17.

Second doses of the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines will be available at the clinic.

The clinic will be located at Lot 7, near the corner of Chapin Drive and College Avenue. Walk-ins are permitted, but registrations are preferred.

SAVE MONTCLAIR LOCAL: We need your support, and we need it today. The journalism you value from Montclair Local, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, depends on the community's support — we exist because the old model of selling ads alone just can't fund journalism at the level we endeavor to provide. That's why you've seen other local newsrooms cut back staff or shut down entirely. Montclair Local was created because we believe that's unacceptable; the community's at its best when triumphs are celebrated, when power is held to account, when diverse lived experiences are shared — when the community is well-informed.

Montclair is seeking to raise $230,000 from donors, members and grantors between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31 to put us on firm footing for 2022, and continue supporting the hard work of our journalists into the new year and beyond. Visit to see how we're doing and make your contribution.
