“Michael was a beloved husband, father, grandfather and civil servant,” Jennifer Yun said. “He had a passion to serve those around him without comparison and if he was here today, Michael would be on the front line helping his neighbors get vaccinated against COVID-19. Our family thanks everyone for ‘keeping Michael’s spirit alive and putting this event together on his behalf. ”

Following the event in Jersey City, the Vaccine Task Force will open a clinic in West Hudson Park in Kearny and Harrison. The team will set up near the pond from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
