NORTHFIELD, N.J. — The Atlantic County Division of Public Health has implemented changes for its vaccination clinics due to recent changes to COVID-19 vaccine authorization and the end of the flu vaccination season.
Flu vaccines will be available through May 18 while COVID-19 vaccines will be available until further notice at monthly clinics.
“While the number of daily lab-confirmed COVID-19 cases has dropped to single digits, the COVID-19 virus may continue to circulate,” County Executive Dennis Levinson said in a press release from the county. “For that reason, we will continue to provide COVID-19 Pfizer and Moderna bivalent vaccines but on a modified schedule.”
COVID-19 vaccinations are available in Northfield at 201 S. Shore Road, 9 am – 12 pm, without an appointment, on Tuesday, May 9 and as of June 6 on the first Tuesday of each month. Vaccinations are also available in Hammonton at 310 Bellevue Avenue, 10 am – 12 pm, without an appointment, on Tuesday, May 16 and as of June 20 will be available by appointment only on the third Tuesday of each month. Appointments for the Hammonton location can be made by calling (609) 645-5933.
Pediatric COVID-19 vaccinations for children ages 6 months to 18 years are available at both locations by appointment only. Please call (609) 645-5933 to schedule.
Levinson noted that as of May, the county has also modified its online reporting of cases and deaths to once a week. Weekly reports will be posted on the county website.
