Hopewell Township Health Department and Wegmans Team Up to Offer Shingles Vaccine Clinics: Protect Yourself from the Painful Disease

Health Department and Wegmans Partner to Host 2 Event

The Hopewell Township Health Department and Wegmans have teamed up to offer two shingles vaccine clinics at Pennington Borough Municipal Hall on April 17 and June 19, 2024. These clinics will provide an opportunity for adults 50 years and older to receive the recommended two doses of the shingles vaccine to protect against the disease and its complications. Additionally, adults 19 years and older with weakened immune systems are also advised to get two doses of the vaccine due to their increased risk.

Residents who are interested in getting vaccinated can sign up for one or both clinics. It is important to note that individuals 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/.

The Hopewell Township Health Department and Wegmans are committed to providing residents with access to this important vaccine that can help prevent shingles disease and its complications. The shingles vaccine is recommended for all adults 50 years of age and older, as well as those with weakened immune systems, such as cancer patients or HIV positive individuals. By getting vaccinated, residents can protect themselves from this painful and debilitating disease that can cause long-term nerve damage if left untreated.
