The Atlantic County COVID-19 Vaccination Megasite in Atlantic City is expanding its walk-in vaccination appointments from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Sunday through Saturday, through May 1.

Walk-in vaccinations will be first come, first served as vaccine supplies last. Those who have registered online and made an appointment through vaccination.atlanticare.org will be prioritized.

All residents aged 16 and older will be able to register for their vaccination on-site. A parent or guardian must accompany those under age 18.

Walk-in appointment availability is subject to change. Should individuals seeking a walk-in appointment during the designated times not secure one, the megasite team will make them an appointment for the following or another convenient day.

“We encourage all members of the community to get vaccinated,” AtlantiCare clinical facility manager Sherrie Bragg said. “As we approach Mother’s and Father’s days, graduations and other spring and summer events and celebrations, being vaccinated and practicing other precautions are key to preventing spread of COVID.”

She continued, “We prefer individuals schedule their appointment online. However, we are offering walk-in appointments as a convenience to our community.”

The megasite is located in the Atlantic City Convention Center, 1 Convention Blvd. Parking is free. The team offers special accommodations for those who have disabilities.
