Exciting Update: Wegmans and the Health Department Partner for 2 Events

In an effort to promote public health and wellness, the Hopewell Township Health Department has teamed up with Wegmans to host two Shingles vaccine clinics at Pennington Borough Municipal Hall. These clinics, scheduled for April 17 and June 19, 2024, are open to all adults who meet the eligibility criteria. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), adults aged 50 and above should receive two doses of the shingles vaccine to protect against the disease and its complications. Similarly, individuals aged 19 and older with weakened immune systems due to illness or treatment should also receive two doses of the vaccine due to their increased risk of contracting shingles.

Residents of the area are encouraged to take advantage of these clinics and sign up for one or both vaccines. It’s important to note that if you only receive one dose at the clinic, you will need to visit a pharmacy in your local area to obtain your second shot. For more information on the shingles vaccine and its benefits, please visit the CDC website at cdc.gov/vaccines/vpd/shingles/. By getting vaccinated against shingles, you not only protect yourself but also contribute to community immunity, which can help prevent outbreaks in your area.
