More people are becoming eligible for the vaccine. Appointments are available for eligible residents at camdencountyvaccine.com or by calling (856) 549-0530 or 1-800-999-9045.

Thousands of vaccination appointments for tomorrow, Wednesday, April 7, are currently available at the Camden County Vaccination Center. The vaccination site is operated by the county in partnership with Cooper University Health Care and Jefferson Health-New Jersey and has provided more than 70,500 vaccinations to date.

“If you are eligible to receive vaccination and you have not yet made an appointment, now is your best opportunity to head online or call our hotline and schedule a time to come see our staff,” said County Commissioner Al Dyer. “Since the start of the vaccine rollout we have not had many opportunities to promote vaccine availability with this level of immediacy. Thanks to an increased allotment of vaccine doses, thousands of new appointments have been made available this week at the vaccine center. If you need an appointment or have an existing appointment that you’d like to move up, do not miss this chance to get protected against COVID-19.”

The Camden County Vaccination Clinic is currently open to those with appointments only. Appointments are available for eligible residents at camdencountyvaccine.com or by calling (856) 549-0530 or 1-800-999-9045.
