Vaccinations available for South Jersey veterans

Upcoming pop-up vaccination event anticipates being able to vaccinate approximately 800 South Jersey veterans

The Camden County Office of Veterans Affairs and the Corporal Michael J. Crescenz VA Medical Center in Philadelphia are teaming up to create a second pop-up vaccination site for approximately 800 South Jersey veterans on Saturday, March 27. Vaccinations will be provided at the Harry Williams Community Center located at the intersection of North Black Horse Pike and Broadway in Runnemede.

Vaccinations will be available by appointment only between 7:45 a.m. and 2:15 p.m. Eligible veterans can call (215) 823-4014 to make an appointment until all available slots have been filled. 

The following conditions must be met to be considered eligible:

  • Must be a veteran (no spouses or relatives at this time)
  • Must be already enrolled for VA benefits
  • Must be at least 55 years of age

“Last month’s pop-up vaccination clinic was incredibly successful and got vaccines into the arms of roughly 590 area veterans,” said County Commissioner Melinda Kane, liaison to the Office of Veterans Affairs. “We are extremely thankful for our partners at the VA for making it possible to provide a second round of appointments and to continue providing these services to men and women who served their country. As our community gets closer to returning to a pre-pandemic state, getting these heroes protected is vitally important.”

No one without an appointment will be administered a vaccine. While future pop-up vaccination sites are possible, no appointments are currently being scheduled outside of March 27.
