HUNTERDON COUNTY, NJ – The Hunterdon County Health Department is currently scheduling vaccination clinic appointment times for April 27 and May 4, as the waiting list for the Drive Thru clinic is ending and most individuals have been made eligible for vaccination, Commissioner Shaun C. Van Doren has announced.

Van Doren, the Commissioner Board’s liaison for the Health Department, stated, “The Department’s clinic has administered nearly 15,000 first and second dose vaccinations to this point and has determined that it is no longer necessary to have a waiting list. Appointments, however, are still required.”

Van Doren noted, “Those age 18 and above can schedule appointments for April 27 and May 4, on the County website www.co.hunterdon.nj.us. Individuals who do not have access to the internet or have difficulty managing the on-line appointment process can call the County Health Department Call Center at 908 788-1351.”

As of April 19, all individuals ages 16 and above are eligible to receive COVID vaccine in the state of New Jersey.

Health Department Director Karen DeMarco has reported, “The state presently allocates the Moderna vaccine for the Hunterdon County clinic that is only approved for those age 18 and above and requires two doses, no less than 28 days apart. Second vaccination appointments are scheduled at the time of the first dose. Individuals ages 16 and 17 must receive the Pfizer vaccine, available locally at CVS and Shoprite.”

“All persons signed up on the County Health Department Waiting List have received several appointment notifications. Any individuals who have been on the Health Department’s Waiting List who have not received an appointment invitation via email, please contact the Health Department at health@co.hunterdon.nj.us,” DeMarco said.

The Drive Thru clinic is located at the Hunterdon County Complex on Route 12 in Raritan Township.
