Vaccination Clinics for Shingles: Collaboration between Hopewell Township Health Department and Wegmans

Health Department and Wegmans Partner to Host 2 Event

In an effort to promote public health, the Hopewell Township Health Department and Wegmans are collaborating to host two shingles vaccine clinics at Pennington Borough Municipal Hall on April 17 and June 19, 2024. These clinics will provide adults aged 50 and above with the opportunity to receive the recommended two doses of the shingles vaccine, which protects against the disease and its complications. Additionally, adults aged 19 and above with weakened immune systems are advised to get two doses of the vaccine due to their increased risk.

Interested individuals can sign up for one or both vaccines at these clinics. It is important to note that those who only receive one dose at these clinics will need to visit Wegmans or another local pharmacy to obtain their second shot.
