The mission of the Woodbridge Department of Health and Human Services is to improve the health and well being of the residents of Woodbridge through health education programs and direct intervention services.
The Woodbridge Department of Health and Human Services is located within the Woodbridge Public Health Center at 2 George Frederick Plaza, Woodbridge New Jersey. All divisions except for Multi Services are located within the Health Center. Multi Services is located within the Evergreen Senior Center located at 400 Inman Ave Colonia, New Jersey.
The Health Department consists of nine divisions. The services and contact information are detailed for each division under the respective individual divisions headings.
The Department of Health and Human Services has Flu vaccines available. Please call the Nursing Division for more information on how you can obtain your flu shot. The telephone number is 732-855-0600, extension 5011. The flu shot is free for Medicare members and $15 if not a member of Medicare.
Receiving a flu shot is advised for any of the following:
*adults over age 50
*health care providers and caretakers for high risk patients
*residents of nursing homes and other institutions housing long-term care patients
*women who will be in the second or third trimester of pregnancy during flu season
*individuals with chronic heart or lung problems, diabetes or any condition that lowers the body’s resistance.
Receiving a pneumonia shot is advised for any of the following:
*healthy adults over 65 years of age
*adults of any age with chronic heart or lung disease or serious chronic disease that may affect the lungs
Note: It is necessary to receive only one pneumonia vaccination every 10 years.
We hope residents will take advantage of this opportunity. Lowering the number of cases of flu and pneumonia this winter is beneficial to the entire community’s health.
