The new vaccination site will be up and running as soon as Cape May County receives more vaccine doses from the state. The goal once the site is open is to distribute 1,000 vaccines per day.

According to the NJ Department of Health, over 642,000 doses of the vaccine, and over 90,000 of the second dose have been given out in New Jersey as of January 27th. 18,999 vaccines were distributed in Atlantic County, 9,091 in Cape May County, 31,574 in Burlington County and 39,378 in Ocean County.

The Atlantic City mega site for the vaccine located at the Convention Center is now open and it can vaccinate up to 3,500 per day when the vaccine becomes fully available. Due to the limited supply, no appointments can be made at this time. Be sure to check back often to see when additional appointments can be made.

Emails, phone calls and texts should go out later this week for appointments to receive the second dose of the vaccine from Rowan College of South Jersey.
