All 6 of New Jersey's mega-vaccination sites now open, but the 2 newest are already booked
State leaders say they want vaccination numbers to increase, and there is now hope, especially since today is the first time all six of New Jersey's mega sites will be open.
The two latest vaccination sites opening, at the Meadowlands in East Rutherford and the Atlantic City Convention Center, are already completely booked, but they do plan to add more appointment times soon.
The two sites join four other mega vaccination sites in New Jersey: Moorestown Mall in Burlington County, Rowan College of South Jersey in Gloucester County, Rockaway Townsquare in Morris County and the New Jersey Convention and Exposition Center in Middlesex County.
People who are getting the shot are very happy with how easy it’s been.
“Came in and it couldn’t of been easier,” says Gary Topche, of Marlboro.
Each center is only offering the shot to priority groups identified by the state, which is health care professionals, first responders, people over the age of 65, those with chronic health conditions and smokers.
Residents are asked to check Hackensack Meridian Health's website to see when they can begin making more appointments at the Meadowlands site.
