New COVID-19 Vaccination Site Opens In Southern Ocean County Today
Do we need more COVID-19 Vaccination sites? Absolutely...
Then it is a good thing that another vaccination site opened in Southern Ocean County today, January 19th.
You can now receive a COVID-19 Vaccine at Southern Regional Middle School which is located at 75 Cedar Bridge Rd. in Manahawkin, Stafford Township.
This site will only be open for vaccine administration on Tuesdays and Saturdays for now.
Take a look at one of our news reporters, Vin Ebenau, who was actually the very first person to receive a COVID-19 vaccine at Southern Regional Middle this morning. And yes, Vin is eligible because he has asthma which makes him more at risk when it comes to COVID-19.
Unfortunately, appointments at this vaccination site are already full for the time being and that seems to be the trend across the entire state since Group 1B was given the green light.
But try not to worry -- officials are aware of the situation and are hard at work trying to get more vaccines, medical professionals and therefore, more available appointments.
