(Camden, NJ) – The Camden County Office of Veterans Affairs and the Corporal Michael J. Crescenz VA Medical Center in Philadelphia are teaming up to create a pop-up vaccination site for 588 South Jersey veterans on Saturday, Jan. 30. Vaccinations will be provided at the Harry Williams Community Center located at the intersection of North Black Horse Pike and Broadway in Runnemede.
Vaccinations will be available by appointment only between 7:45 AM and 2:15 PM Eligible veterans can call (215) 823-4014 to make an appointment until all available slots have been filled.
The following conditions must be met to be considered eligible:
- Must be a veteran (no spouses or relatives at this time)
- Must be already enrolled for VA benefits
- Must be at least 75 years of age; or at least 65 years of age with a serious health condition
“After months spent in isolation, these vaccinations will be an incredible benefit for the mental and physical health of our region’s veterans,” said County Commissioner Melinda Kane, liaison to the Office of Veterans Affairs. “While we wish that enough resources were available to offer these services more broadly, we are thankful for our partners at the VA for making it possible to increase the number of veterans able to receive this life-changing vaccine.”
No one without an appointment will be administered a vaccine. While future pop-up vaccination sites are possible, no appointments are currently being scheduled outside of Jan. 30.
