HUNTERDON COUNTY, NJ – The Hunterdon County Health Department is improving the process for obtaining a COVID-19 vaccine appointment at the County clinic. The Department is rescheduling the sign up for appointments to Friday, February 12, 2021 at 10:00 a.m., to ensure the new process works effectively for the public.
Health Department Director Karen DeMarco said, “With the new platform, individuals will be able to secure a place on the clinic appointment waiting list. Each week, those next on the waiting will be scheduled for a clinic appointment.”
“There are likely over 50,000 individuals in Hunterdon County currently eligible to receive vaccine. The Hunterdon County Health Department is provided only 400-500 first doses of vaccine per week by the state,” DeMarco said.
However, due to the limited amount of vaccine available weekly, it may be several weeks before appointments are available for some on the waiting list.
As of February 1, Hunterdon County Health Department COVID-19 clinics prioritize those who live or work in Hunterdon County.
A link to the new appointment system will be available on Friday at 10:00 a.m. and for more information, click here.
