    Vaccine Information for Children Ages 5-11:  There are several avenues parents can take in locating a vaccine for your child.  This is simply informational for parents, should you need guidance in finding a vaccine.  First, contact your pediatrician.  Our understanding is that many pediatrician's offices are offering clinics for children.  If they are not, they may also have information to share with you regarding other locations where the COVID vaccine is available for children.  Second, the Hunterdon County Department of Health has created a vaccine availability website.  Use this website to make an appointment through the HCDOH.  Finally, the local Walgreens pharmacy on Route 22 in Whitehouse Station is offering the pediatric vaccine.  You can search and make an appointment via the COVID Vaccine Finder website.

    Permanent Menu Change - Pizza day will now be on Thursday, not Friday.
