Immunizations conducted by NJ DOH and public health partners

It’s been a busy year for the New Jersey Department of Health and its public health partners — local, county, and faith-based groups that are funded by state grants. Together they’ve delivered 250,000 immunizations.

“New Jersey’s successes are owed in large part to our public health partners who help to ensure residents are given opportunities to lead healthy lifestyles,” said Health Commissioner Cathleen Bennett.

Other milestones reached by the department and its partners include:

  • 178,000 health screenings
  • 57,000 inspections of retail food establishments
  • 72,000 pets vaccinated for rabies
  • 4,4000 inspections of public beaches and pools
