The Camden County Vaccination Center is operated by the county in partnership with Cooper University Health Care and Jefferson Health-New Jersey.

“Our team is always evaluating and reevaluating how best to offer these services to our community. With more than half of our adult population already vaccinated, our goal is to reduce and eliminate any hurdles our remaining residents face,” said County Commissioner Director Louis Cappelli, Jr. “By giving patients the opportunity to receive their vaccination without an appointment, we hope to provide additional flexibility and to simplify the process. If you have not gotten your vaccine yet, we strongly urge you to take advantage of these changes.”
