Getting the first round of the COVID-19 vaccine to those who are eligible has been a real struggle and immense challenge for many in the Garden State.

Now comes word from 6 ABC that the second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine will be available soon at Rowan University in Deptford. Rowan College is one of the six vaccine mega sites in New Jersey.
According to a press release from Rowan, calls have already been made at e-mails have been sent to those in Group 1, formally Phase 1. The health department has administered the Moderna vaccine which requires a second dose 28 days or later after the first dose. You must have received the first dose at the Rowan site in order to receive the second shot.
The Atlantic City mega site for the vaccine located at the Convention Center can vaccinate up to 3,500 per day when the vaccine becomes fully available. Due to the limited supply, no appointments can be made at this time. Be sure to check back often to see when additional appointments can be made.
