Health Department and Wegmans Partner to Host 2 Event

The Hopewell Township Health Department and Wegmans have joined forces to offer two shingles vaccine clinics at the Pennington Borough Municipal Hall on April 17 and June 19, 2024. These clinics will provide a valuable opportunity for adults over the age of 50 to receive the recommended two doses of the shingles vaccine, which can help prevent the disease and its complications. Additionally, individuals who are under the age of 19 with weakened immune systems should also consider receiving two doses of the vaccine due to their increased risk.

Those interested in obtaining this important vaccination are encouraged to sign up for one or both 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.
