The Hopewell Township Health Department and Wegmans are teaming 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 are encouraged to sign up for one or both vaccines at these 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/.
