Ocean County Makes Changes to Vaccination Clinics; Shots Are Now Provided in Smaller Sites, Closer to Residents

Ocean County has begun the transition from big regional COVID 19 vaccination sites to smaller locations as the effort continues to make vaccine accessibility as easy as possible.

The two largest vaccination clinics run by the Ocean County Health Department – the Southern Regional Middle School, Stafford Township and the RWJ Barnabas Health Care Arena at Toms River Regional High School North – will no longer be vaccination sites as of July 1.

Rather, the Ocean County Health Department will hold clinics at the Ocean County Health Department, 175 Sunset Ave., Toms River, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Tuesdays and Thursdays, through July and a drive through clinic will be held at Ocean County College, Hooper Avenue, Toms River, from 9 a.m. to noon, Wednesdays, through July.

Vaccinating Ocean County's Senior Population and Others Will Take Coordinated Effort of All Health Care Providers

Ocean County officials agree that while opening up the COVID 19 vaccination to more of the public has its benefits, it also raises concerns over the supply of vaccine and the timely distribution.

"The bottom-line is we need all hands on deck," said Ocean County Commissioner Gerry P. Little, who serves as liaison to the Ocean County Health Department. "We need all of our hospitals, all of our pharmacies, all of our supermarkets, all of our doctors' offices to be given the ability to deliver this vaccine to the public."
