Camden County Veterans Can Get COVID Vaccine at Pop-Up Clinic
On Saturday, January 30th, a pop-up clinic will go up in Runnemede with the ability to vaccinate more than 500 local veterans against COVID-19.
The clinic will open at Harry Williams Community Center with 588 doses of the coronavirus vaccine available. Interested veterans must make an appointment, reports Patch.com.
Those eligible to be vaccinated at the pop-up clinic are veterans 75 years old or older or those 65 years old with a serious health condition, and veterans currently enrolled for VA benefits. Unfortunately, the eligibility does not extend to spouses or relatives of veterans at this time.
Camden County Commissioner Melinda Kane, speaking on behalf of the Office of Veterans Affairs, tells Patch.com, "After months spent in isolation, these vaccinations will be an incredible benefit for the mental and physical health of our region's veterans. While we wish that enough resources were available to offer these services more broadly, we are thankful for our partners at the VA for making it possible to increase the number of veterans able to receive this life-changing vaccine."
COVID-19 vaccinations will take place at Harry Williams Community Center on Saturday between 7:45 a.m. and 2:15 p.m. Eligible veterans should call 215-823-4014 to reserve a time slot. Appointments are being made on a first call, first serve basis.
The Harry Williams Community Center is located at 2 Broadway (the intersection of North Black Horse Pike and Broadway) in Runnemede, Camden County.
