NJ hospitals ready to administer first round of COVID-19 vaccines

How the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick has prepared

The rollout of COVID-19 vaccines begins in New Jersey on Tuesday, with frontline health care workers the first New Jerseyans to get vaccinated. New Jersey is slated to receive a first round of 76,000 Pfizer vaccines, with allotments going to six hospitals statewide.

One of those is the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, whose main lobby has been turned into an inoculation center for staff. On Monday, it opened its doors to NJ Spotlight News for a tour of its vaccination setup and to show how it will begin inoculating health care workers. Correspondent Joanna Gagis has the story.
