Ocean County Health Department Offers Vaccinations, Information Related to Sandy

Event at Trader's Cove.

The Ocean County Health Department is continuing to provide free tetanus vaccination, information on mold and other Sandy-related information this coming weekend at Trader’s Cove on Mantoloking Road in Brick.

The OCHD outreach vehicle will be there from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, August 16-18th. Trader's Cove is located on the northern side of Mantoloking Road just west of the Mantoloking Bridge.

"We know that many people are still in the process of cleaning up their property after the storm and it is important that people are protected against tetanus in case they sustain an injury while cleaning up debris,” said Ocean County Freeholder Gerry P. Little, Liaison to the Ocean County Board of Health, in a prepared statement.

Daniel Regenye, OCHD Public Health Coordinator, said, “We have been providing this service to areas affected by Superstorm Sandy since the storm made landfall in October and have vaccinated hundreds of people with the Tdap vaccine. Before we began this community outreach campaign, we offered Tdap vaccinations to first responders in every municipality beginning right after the storm."

Residents will also receive a packet containing Mold Guidelines for New Jersey Residents, other information related to mold and West Nile Virus, Safe Swimming Guidelines, OCHD Services, N95 masks, gloves, and hand sanitizer, Prescription Drop-Off locations and a listing of important hotlines for information.

Residents can find updated “Sandy” information on the Ocean County Health Department website at www.ochd.orgor follow the Health Department on Twitter@OCpublichealth.
