This is a very important public service that is now available.
Atlantic County’s free flu and COVID-19 vaccination clinics will begin today, Monday, September 27, 2021.
You can click on this link for more information.
Residents will be served who are 18 years and older in need of a COVID-19 vaccination. You will have a choice of the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine or the two-dose Moderna vaccine.
You don’t need an appointment, but face masks are required for entrance to all locations.
You can receive both a flu shot and a COVID-19 vaccination at the same visit. They are administered in separate arms.
It’s important to note that the Atlantic County Division of Public Health does not have the Pfizer booster shots that have recently been approved by the Centers for Disease Control for those 65 and older, immunocompromised, and those at high risk for exposure due to occupational or institutional settings (teachers, health care workers, etc.)
The FDA has approved the Pfizer booster shot for those eligible, who have completed their second Pfizer dose at least 6 months or more ago.
For more information, please visit The New Jersey Covid-19 vaccination finder to find a Pfizer booster shot location or call the state’s Vaccine Call Center at 1-855-568-0545.
