The Camden County Health Department, in partnership with the Rutgers School of Nursing, and Cooper University Health Care operated a free, pop-up vaccination clinic where booster doses were available for anyone on site that qualified. The free vaccine clinic was open to walk-up patients in the community.
Commissioner Director Lou Cappelli Jr. talked about how the county has prepared and will be executing the next phase of the vaccine program.
“We watched President Biden get his booster two days ago and now our health department is adding them to our arsenal of tools to bolster the health and welfare of our residents,” Cappelli said. “This week we had nine more residents pass away from this virus and now is not the time to stop pushing the best tool we have to end this pandemic. Our public health team and our partners will continue to travel the county offering up these tools to protect the public from COVID.”
At this time, more than 303,585 residents are fully vaccinated in Camden County and more than 337,561 residents have gotten at least one dose.
