Snow can’t stop NJ hospitals from administering COVID-19 vaccines

Gov. Phil Murphy said the hospitals expecting to receive their first deliveries of vaccine would still receive them

Gov. Phil Murphy said the winter storm that hit New Jersey Wednesday night disrupted “some amount of the delivery” of the COVID-19 vaccine in the state, but minimally so. He said Thursday morning that the 47 hospitals expecting to receive their first delivery of the Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine would still receive it.

The vaccine arrived almost two hours earlier than expected at Holy Name Medical Center in Teaneck, a welcome sight for a medical team that was at the epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic during the early spring months. Correspondent Joanna Gagis reports.
