NJ to reopen South Jersey mega-site to deal with COVID-19 booster shots

More than 14,500 booster shots were administered in New Jersey at the weekend

New Jersey will reopen a COVID-19 vaccination mega-site in South Jersey this week as the state rolls out booster shots of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine. Counties like Bergen and Essex ramped up their vaccination centers, but unlike the crowds that waited hours for their first shots this winter, people didn’t line up in droves for a third dose even after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offered guidelines last Friday.

More than 14,500 boosters were administered in New Jersey at the weekend, according to the state. Health officials note that many people are a little hesitant over whether they need a booster just yet.
