Hunterdon County is being issued several hundred vaccine doses each week from the state, while the demand from residents is in the thousands.
There simply is not enough vaccine supply to meet the demand from those who are eligible. Health Departments and medical care providers across the state and country are faced with the same issue due to a shortfall in vaccine supply.
In order for the public to have notice of available appointments, and to be aware of the next time appointments will be made available, the County Health Department has issued the following announcement:
Starting tomorrow, Wednesday, January 27, at 10 am, the Hunterdon County Health Department will announce new clinic dates. Vaccine clinic dates are by appointment only, and appointments can be made by visiting https://www.co.hunterdon.nj.us/coronavirus.html
On Wednesday each week, the Hunterdon County Health Department will post new COVID-19 Clinic appointments, based on the availability of the vaccine supply from the New Jersey Department of Health.
The Health Department COVID-19 clinic is available only to those who live or work in Hunterdon County. Proof of residency or in-county employment is required. Proof of residency includes driver’s license, passport, or utility bill. For those employed in the county, a work identification or pay stub is acceptable.
Vaccinations are open only to eligible individuals: those age 65 and over, younger persons with certain health conditions, healthcare workers and first responders.
Second dose appointments will be made at the time of initial vaccination.
Individuals without internet access can call the Health Department hotline (908 788-1351) starting at 10 am on January 27th. Due to the vast demand for vaccine, the Health Department is not able to maintain a waiting list.
