Health, passport information distributed at Monmouth Mall July 6th

FREEHOLD, NJ – The Monmouth County Health Department (MCHD) is teaming up with the Monmouth County Clerk Christine Giordano Hanlon to ensure you pack the latest information on health safety as well as your favorite swimsuit and your passport as you set out to enjoy your summer travels.
On Thursday, July 6th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Monmouth Mall in Eatontown, the MCHD will partner with the staff of the County Clerk’s office to provide information on passports as well as travel-related illnesses such as Zika and details on the MCHD’s travel clinic.  Staff will be on the upper level, adjacent to Boscov’s.  In addition to the Monmouth Mall, information will be available at the County Connection office in Neptune Township and the Monmouth County Clerk’s office in Freehold.

“As Monmouth County residents prepare to travel during the summer months, we want to ensure that they are armed not only with their sunscreen but with critically important health information necessary for the safe enjoyment of the wonderful weather,” Freeholder Deputy Director John P. Curley, liaison to the MCHD, said. “We are grateful for the participation of the County Clerk in this effort and together we can make sure we reach as many people as possible.”

“We are pleased to partner with the Monmouth County Health Department to provide this pertinent information to travelers,” said Monmouth County Clerk Christine Giordano Hanlon. “During this summer travel season, it is important for individuals to understand the facts of these travel related illness so they may take the necessary precautions to keep themselves and their families safe.” 

“The Monmouth County Department of Health values our collaborative relationship with many different agencies. MCHD is working with the County Clerk’s Office in an effort to disseminate travel related information vital to our residents in Monmouth County. The Zika virus and yellow fever are two travel related diseases that can negatively affect travelers and the County Clerk’s Passport Offices are locations where the residents routinely go for information so it made sense to partner with them in an effort to educate our communities in which we serve.”

The MCHD also sponsors a Healthy Traveler program. For questions or to make an appointment for preventative vaccinations, please call 732-431-7456 x8512.
