Ocean County Health Department offering Pfizer vaccine at Toms River site
You can still literally walk-in and get a vaccine, so why not?
For the most part Ocean County has been administering the Moderna vaccine but recently began offering the Johnson and Johnson and now the Pfizer vaccine.
The Ocean County Health Department announced on Tuesday that they are now offering the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine on Wednesday and Thursday at the Toms River clinic located at the RWJ Barnabas Healthcare Arena.
This isn't an announcement for just adults, anyone between 12 and 18-years old can also come in to get the Pfizer vaccine, which is the only one approved and available for this age group.
However, anyone under 18 must provide a consent form signed by a parent or guardian in order to receive the vaccine, and that's not just in Ocean County.
The clinic today in Toms River will run from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm and tomorrow will go from 9:00 am until 3:00 pm.
OCHD officials said that the Moderna vaccine will still be available at each clinic in Ocean County along with the Pfizer vaccine.
