Shingles Shot Clinic: Hopewell Township Health Department and Wegmans Partner to Protect Local Community

Health Department and Wegmans Partner to Host 2 Event

The Hopewell Township Health Department and Wegmans are joining forces to hold two shingles vaccine clinics at Pennington Borough Municipal Hall on April 17 and June 19, 2024. These clinics will offer adults aged 50 years and older the chance to receive the recommended two doses of the shingles vaccine, which protects against the disease and its complications. Additionally, individuals aged 19 years and older with weakened immune systems are advised to get two doses of the vaccine due to their increased risk.

Interested residents are encouraged to 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. For more information on the shingles vaccine and its benefits, please visit the CDC website at cdc.gov/vaccines/vpd/shingles/.
