Cape May County's Department of Health will make COVID-19 booster shots available this month.

The Cape May County Department of Health will be providing COVID vaccinations for walk-ins on Wednesday, May 5.

There will be 100 vaccine doses on a first come, first served basis. The site of the vaccination clinic is the Avalon Community Center, located at 3001 Avalon Ave.

Walk-in times are 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The walk-in availability is currently for Wednesday, May 5 only.

Anyone who comes to the Avalon Community Center will be receiving Moderna. A second dose will be automatically scheduled. Moderna vaccine is only eligible for individuals 18 years old and up. Anyone who is 16 or 17 years old must find another site that provides the Pfizer vaccine, according to a county news release.

“This is a great opportunity for people who haven’t been able to make an appointment to get their initial dose,” said Cape May County Commissioner Jeff Pierson, the liaison to Department of Health. “We hope people use this chance to protect themselves and continue the progress we have been making in Cape May County.”

People who can’t make it to Avalon on Wednesday can still register for the COVID vaccine and find locations to schedule an appointment in the future.
