The Montclair Gateway to Aging in Place (Montclair G.A.P.) offers a variety of services to residents ages 55 years and older who want to live their best life locally. Our goal is to bridge the gap between existing services and real needs in order to help Montclair seniors to age in place.
If you are older than age 55 and need help obtaining an appointment for a COVID vaccination, we can help. Please fill out the required Potential Client information requested by clicking here. Make sure to press submit. A Montclair G.A.P. volunteer will get back to you in a few days. If you are having difficulty filing out the form, leave a voice message at (973) 433- 5826.
