The Borough of Seaside Park, located on the Barnegat Barrier Island in Ocean County, New Jersey, was incorporated in 1898. Seaside Park is a small town of only 0.77 square miles with a year-round population of just over 2,200 residents. With almost two miles of shoreline on the Atlantic Ocean, the borough’s main industry is summer tourism. Seaside Park is bordered on the north by the Borough of Seaside Heights and its amusement arcades, rides and boardwalk. To the south is South Seaside Park, which is an unincorporated section of Berkeley Township, and Island Beach State Park.

Seaside Park is located across the Barnegat Bay from Toms River, the county seat of Ocean County. It is easily reached by Route 37 from the west (Garden State Parkway exit 82 or Route 70 to Route 37 east) or Route 35 from the north (Garden State Parkway exit 98, Route 34 east to Route 35 south).

Beginning Monday 2/22/2021, the Borough of Seaside Park will begin its COVID-19 Vaccine Registration Assistance Program for eligible residents of Seaside Park.

Due to concerns that some residents of Seaside Park do not have access to computers or may have apprehension when it comes to registering, the Mayor and Council have authorized the Recreation Department in conjunction with volunteers from the community, to aid in this endeavor. Beginning Monday 2/22, residents can call the Recreation Department extension (732-793-3700 Ext. 105) weekdays and leave their name, address, and phone number. A member of the Recreation Department or one of our volunteers will then return the call to obtain the necessary information to register for the  COVID-19 Vaccine. 

Residents using this program will provide all of the information that is required for the online registration process, including their name, address, phone number, date of birth, gender, current employment status, existing medical issues (asthma, cancer, etc.) and other general information that is required when registering for the COVID-19 vaccine on the State of New Jersey’s website.

No financial or specific insurance information will be required, and residents will not be asked to give their Social Security Number during the registration process. All information given to the Borough of Seaside Park during the registration process will be entered directly into the State of New Jersey’s vaccine registration website and will NOT BE KEPT ON FILE by the Borough. The Recreation Department will only keep the resident’s contact information on file.

If the resident using this vaccine registration assistance program does not have a personal email address, the Recreation Department and/or volunteer will input a borough email address into the State website during the registration process. Then, the State will use the borough email address to confirm the resident’s registration and also to schedule an appointment to receive the vaccine at a later date. The Recreation Department and/or volunteer will relay any information received from the State via the borough email address to that resident via telephone.

Please NOTE the following –

 **This program is for permanent residents only. If you have a second home in Seaside Park, please register with your permanent residence locale. 

** In regards to this program, please DO NOT physically go to Borough Hall for questions on this program. This process should be done via phone as to avoid unnecessary exposure to COVID-19 and other illnesses that may compromise our residents.
