Camden County Commissioners open pop up vaccine site

Camden County Commissioners offer a pop up vaccine site on April 28 beginning at 1pm at the Jack Curtis Stadium at Cooper River Park, 1301 North Park Drive, Pennsauken.

The Camden County Health Department, in partnership with the Rutgers School of Nursing, and Cooper University Health Care will be operating a pop-up vaccination clinic for residents at Cooper River Park. No appointments necessary, walk-ups welcome.

Commissioner Director Louis Cappelli shared the importance of getting the vaccine into untraditional places where residents congregate. “Right now, as we start to see vaccine demand decline, it’s important for our public health operation to get into to places where people recreate and congregate, so we can offer access and opportunity to the vaccine,” Cappelli said. “This is another example of our elected body bringing the vaccine to the people instead of expecting patients to come to us. In the coming months, we will work to utilize our community’s third places to vaccinate residents and get one step closer to a post-pandemic world.”

At this current time, more than 230,000 residents have gotten at least one dose of a COVID vaccine in Camden County. This is more than 50% of the total adult population.
