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

The Hopewell Township Health Department has teamed up with Wegmans to host two Shingles vaccine clinics at Pennington Borough Municipal Hall on April 17 and June 19, 2024. These clinics are an excellent opportunity for residents in the area to protect themselves from shingles and its complications. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), adults aged 50 and older should receive two doses of the shingles vaccine to prevent the disease. Additionally, those who are 19 years old or older and have weakened immune systems due to illness or treatment should also receive two doses of the vaccine due to their increased risk of contracting shingles.

If you only receive one dose at the clinics, it’s important to visit Wegmans or another pharmacy in the area to obtain your second shot. It’s crucial to take advantage of this opportunity to protect yourself from shingles and its complications. For more information on the shingles vaccine and its benefits, please visit the CDC website at cdc.gov/vaccines/vpd/shingles/. Don’t wait any longer – sign up for one or both vaccines today!
