The Atlantic County Division of Public Health has announced COVID-19 vaccination clinics for Tuesday, January 19 through Thursday, January 21 for eligible individuals as designated by the NJ Department of Health. This now includes individuals 65 and older and those 16-64 with chronic medical conditions, as identified by the Centers for Disease Control, that put them at increased risk of severe illness from COVID-19.
Appointments are required and can be made online at: www.aclink.org. Clinics will be held 9 AM – 4 PM each of the three days at Atlantic Cape Community College, 5100 Black Horse Pike, Mays Landing. Walk-ins will not be accepted. If more vaccine becomes available, additional appointments may be added.
Residents may pre-register to receive notification of eligibility at the New Jersey Vaccination Scheduling System at covidvaccine.nj.gov. Once an individual is eligible to receive the vaccine they will receive notification from the system to advise them to make an appointment as well as vaccination locations in their area.
A list of current vaccine locations throughout the state is available at: https://covid19.nj.gov/pages/covid-19-vaccine-locations-for-eligible-recipients
The state has also identified the Atlantic City Convention Center as one of six mega sites in the state that will provide vaccinations. County health officials are currently working with state officials to prepare for its opening which the state anticipates could be before the end of January.
