Several counties in New Jersey are holding COVID-19 vaccine clinics this week for children ages 5 to 11 to get the Pfizer vaccine.
Camden County offered the dose at their health hub in Blackwood for kids in the age range. Elizabeth Miller and her younger sister, Victoria, were some of the first this morning ahead of a very special occasion.
"My sister is happy for her birthday and she's going to be able to invite kids instead of having a birthday at home and virtual,” says Elizabeth.

Burlington County did the same this week with 800 appointments booking in just a few hours of them opening. Camden County added extra hours in Blackwood to give parents the opportunity. Haddonfield Mayor Colleen Bianco Bezich got her son vaccinated.
"We could not wait to get it for him,” says Bezich. “We obviously been waiting on travel and larger family gatherings and school. We were really trepidatious about that."
The entire process in the county is designed to be quick and easy for families. The cars pull right up into the tent and kids stay in their seats the entire time.
"This is super simple,” says Chris Miller. “We pulled in this morning, got in line and got the shot."
Appointments for Camden County can be made online. You do not have to be a county resident to get the shot.
