Shingles Vaccine Clinics: Promoting Health and Wellness in Hopewell Township

Exciting Update: Wegmans and the Health Department Partner for 2 Events

In an effort to promote the health and well-being of its residents, the Hopewell Township Health Department has partnered with Wegmans to organize two Shingles vaccine clinics at Pennington Borough Municipal Hall. These clinics will take place on April 17 and June 19, 2024. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), adults who are 50 years and older should receive two doses of the shingles vaccine in order to prevent shingles and its complications. Additionally, adults who are 19 years and older and have weakened immune systems due to disease or therapy should also get two doses of the vaccine due to their higher risk of contracting shingles.

The Hopewell Township Health Department is encouraging all residents in the area to sign up for one or both vaccines at the upcoming clinics. If you only receive one vaccine at the clinics, you will need to visit Wegmans or another pharmacy in the area to obtain your second shot. For more information on the benefits of the shingles vaccine, please visit the CDC website at cdc.gov/vaccines/vpd/shingles/. It’s important for individuals to understand that getting vaccinated against shingles can help prevent a painful rash from occurring, as well as reduce their risk of developing complications such as pneumonia or post-herpetic neuralgia (PHN).
