Most COVID-19 Vaccinations Canceled Monday, ACCC Site Still Open
The nor'easter pounding New Jersey with snow, rain, and wind has forced the closure of many of the Monday's scheduled COVID-19 vaccination sites, with the exception of one in Mays Landing.
The Atlantic County Division of Public Health is still planning to hold its COVID-19 vaccination clinic at Atlantic Cape Community College in Mays Landing on Monday, for those with appointments to receive first doses of the Moderna vaccine.
Clinics for second doses are scheduled by appointment Tuesday through Thursday. Anyone who cannot keep a scheduled appointment should contact the county by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
COVID-19 testing conducted by Vault Health at the county’s Galloway library branch has been canceled for Monday. Those who had appointments may reschedule for another date and time. Appointments are available weekdays through February 11 and can be made at www.aclink.org.
The state has announced it is closing each of the six regional COVID-19 vaccination mega sites on Monday due to the winter storm. Those who had appointments at the Atlantic City Convention Center will be rescheduled for Thursday, February 4. Clients will be notified by email or phone.

Governor Phil Murphy has declared a state of emergency for Monday because of the winter storm that could bring 24 inches of snow to the northern part of the state and rain, high winds and possible flooding to South Jersey. Hazardous conditions are expected to continue through Tuesday morning.
“Due to the storm, we expect most, if not all, vaccine sites to be closed on Monday,” the state Department of Health wrote in an email to people with vaccine appointments.
“Depending on the extent of the storm, operations of vaccine sites on Tuesday may also be disrupted.”
