“Case counts have continued to surge for the last few weeks and we’re pulling out all of the stops to make sure every Camden County resident remains safe and healthy,” said Commissioner Director Louis Cappelli, Jr. “We have expanded testing sites across the county to keep up with the high demand, but I want to reemphasize the importance of getting vaccinated and getting a booster shot. We’ve seen it time and time again, those who are vaccinated are much less likely to become severely ill and die from this virus. So please, if you haven’t yet, get vaccinated and get your booster. You can make an appointment for your first or second dose or your booster shot at the Camden County Health Hub by visiting www.CamdenCountyVaccine.com.”

The new testing sites and times are located below: 

  • Beginning on Jan. 3, Health Hub testing will be available at the Health Hub located at Camden County College’s Blackwood campus from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays by appointment only
  • Starting on Jan. 6, at the Health Hub no appointment will be needed on Thursdays from 8 to 11 a.m. This will be a saliva test. 
  • Starting on Jan. 4, on Tuesdays the county Health Department will be administering testing at the Charles DePalma Public Works complex from 8 to 11 a.m. This will be a saliva test.  
  • Beginning on Jan. 5, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays the county Health Department will be administering testing from 8 to 11 a.m. at the Camden County Complex located at 2600 Mt. Ephraim Avenue in Camden City. This will be a saliva test and no appointment is needed.

In addition to these county testing options the state Department of Health is also offering a mail in option.

The new program is in addition to traditional testing operated at designated testing sites.

You can order a test by going to learn.vaulthealth.com/nj.

You then send the test back in pre-paid packaging through UPS’ next-day delivery and you must drop off the package at a UPS site or dropbox. Results should be back to you within 24 to 48 hours.
