[ARCHIVED] Community COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic for All Eligible to Receive the Vaccine 4/16/21: Updated 4/14

The Twp. Health Dept. & Walmart will be conducting a community COVID-19 vaccination clinic at Our Lady of Good Counsel (school bldg) on 4/16/21 - 8 am to 4 pm. This clinic is for anyone eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. An appointment is required.

April 14, 2021 Update - The Clinic Will Take Place With Moderna Vaccine

Great news! Walmart was able to secure Moderna vaccine for Friday’s clinic. Please see the attached, revised flier. The registration forms will remain the same and will still need to be completed and brought to the clinic. The Moderna info will be added to the registration forms at the clinic.   

Those scheduled for an appointment will remain scheduled for their time slot and should come at that time to be vaccinated. Those who would like to cancel their scheduled time slot may do so by calling the phone number on the flier.  There are still some open slots available for those who would like to be vaccinated. Please call the phone number on the flier to schedule an appointment. 

April 13, 2021 Update

The clinic currently scheduled for April 16, 2021 is currently in limbo based upon the recent announcements regarding the J&J vaccine.  Please see the statement below from the NJ Health Commissioner on the subject below.  As additional information becomes available, it will be posted.

From Commissioner Persichilli:
Out of an abundance of caution and following the guidance of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the U. S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the New Jersey Department of Health this morning paused the administration of the Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccine across all vaccination sites in the state. 

The CDC and the FDA are reviewing the data involving six reported cases—among nearly 7 million doses administered in the U.S.—in women between the ages of 18 and 48 who received the J&J vaccine. Symptoms occurred 6 to 13 days after vaccination. In these cases, a type of blood clot called cerebral venous sinus thrombosis was seen in combination with low levels of blood platelets. Both the CDC and FDA have said that these adverse events are extremely rare. According to the FDA and CDC, individuals who have received the vaccine and develop abdominal pain, leg pain, shortness of breath, severe headache or other unusual symptoms within three weeks after vaccination should contact their health care provider.

All New Jersey vaccination sites have been told to cancel or put on hold appointments for the J&J vaccine until further notice. For individuals scheduled to receive the J&J vaccine, the Department will work with all vaccination sites to make arrangements for the administration of an alternative two-dose vaccine. We will work with all sites, as needed, to reschedule vaccination appointments.

The Department will await further guidance from the federal government. The federal Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) is scheduled to hold an emergency meeting tomorrow to discuss these adverse events and make recommendations to the CDC on how to proceed.
