The Cape May County Department of Health will be providing a second booster shot of the COVID-19 vaccines.
The vaccines will be provided at the Department of Health’s offices, at 6 Moore Road in Cape May Court House on June 6 and June 20 from 3 p.m. to 5 for initial doses and boosters.
These are walk-in clinics. Masks, identification, and COVID-19 vaccine cards (if applicable) are required for all clinic locations.
“The Department of Health will continue to provide these necessary services today and, in the future,” said Cape May County Commissioner Jeffrey Pierson. “Life has returned to normal, but it is still important to protect yourself, especially the most vulnerable. Getting the COVID-19 vaccine and boosters is the best defense against this disease.”
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that immunocompromised individuals and people over the age of 50 who received an initial booster dose of an mRNA vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna) at least 4 months ago are now eligible for another mRNA booster to increase their protection against severe disease from COVID-19.
It was also recommended that all individuals over the age of 18, who received a primary vaccine and booster dose of Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 vaccine at least 4 months ago may now receive a second booster dose using an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine.
In most situations, anyone who received a Pfizer or Moderna vaccine can receive either mRNA vaccine booster. The only mRNA vaccine that the Cape May County Department of Health provides is from Moderna.
