ShopRite announced that its Somers Point store will be among 39 of its supermarkets in New Jersey that will administer COVID-19 vaccines to healthcare workers.
ShopRite pharmacies are following the federal government’s distribution schedule, and are taking a phased approach to the vaccine’s distribution, focusing on those individuals at highest risk of exposure. In this first phase, persons working in the healthcare profession are prioritized to receive the vaccine, ShopRite said in a news release.
In Atlantic County, the pharmacies at the ShopRite stores in Somers Point on Bethel Road and Absecon on Route 30 will administer the vaccine.
For those eligible, vaccinations are available by appointment only, while supplies last, according to the release.
For more information on eligibility or to make an appointment, visit vaccines.shoprite.com or download the ShopRite Pharmacy mobile app and use the online scheduler. Due to demand, appointment availability may be limited.
Currently, vaccines are not available for the general public. However, ShopRite anticipates expanding access to the vaccine as soon as the government enters the next phase of the vaccine’s distribution.
