“Since cases have remained high for the past week or so, I’d like to remind everyone that if you have not received a COVID-19 booster shot, you’re no longer considered up to date on your vaccinations,” said Commissioner Director Louis Cappelli Jr. “All adults and children ages 12-17 are eligible for their first booster shots and adults over the age of 50 and those who are immunocompromised are now eligible for a fourth dose, which are all being administered at the Camden County Health Hub. So please, make an appointment at the Camden County Health Hub by visiting www.CamdenCountyVaccine.com.”

Vaccine hours:

Operational hours at the Camden County Health Hub vaccine clinic run from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays and 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursdays. This includes booster shots for ages 12-17.

Vaccine numbers were not available as of Monday afternoon.

The county Health Department is continuing to closely track new cases of COVID-19 and information regarding the prevalence of the Omicron variant. New cases are often reassigned to other municipalities over the course of an investigation.
