(Gloucester Township, NJ) – Due to a significant winter weather event forecasted to begin on Sunday night and continue through Monday, the Camden County COVID-19 Vaccination Center is rescheduling all appointments currently scheduled for Monday, Feb. 1, and Tuesday, Feb. 2, in the interest of the public’s health and safety. Patients have already begun to receive notification of their new appointments. All rescheduled appointments will now occur on Wednesday, Feb. 3.

Patients will not have to manually reschedule their appointment. All appointments scheduled for Monday and Tuesday will show as “cancelled” in the patient’s MyChart account, and a new appointment during the same time slot will appear for Wednesday, Feb. 3. Patients whose schedules do not allow for their vaccination on Wednesday are asked to immediately contact the vaccination center to further reschedule their appointment.

“Though we would like to keep the vaccination center open without interruption, we cannot, in the interest of our patients’ safety, expect anyone to travel to the site during what is forecasted to be a significant snow accumulation,” said County Commissioner Director Louis Cappelli, Jr. “The Camden County Department of Health, Jefferson Health New Jersey, and Cooper University Health Care, are prepared to accommodate any increase in patients later in the week without adjusting additional appointments.”  

Individuals who are scheduled to receive their vaccination on Monday or Tuesday and have questions can call the county’s hotline at (856) 549-0530.
