Protecting against Shingles: Wegmans and Health Department Partner for Clinics in Pennington Borough

Wegmans and the Hopewell Township Health Department are joining forces to provide two shingles vaccine clinics at Pennington Borough Municipal Hall on April 17 and June 19, 2024. These clinics will offer an opportunity for adults 50 years and older to receive the recommended two doses of the shingles vaccine, which helps protect against the disease and its complications. Additionally, adults aged 19 years and older with weakened immune systems are advised to get two doses of the vaccine due to their increased risk.

Residents who want to take advantage of these clinics can sign up for one or both vaccines. It’s important to note that individuals who only receive one dose at these clinics will need to visit Wegmans or another local pharmacy to obtain their second shot. For more information on the shingles vaccine and its benefits, please visit the CDC website at cdc.gov/vaccines/vpd/shingles/. By taking advantage of these clinics, residents can protect themselves from this potentially life-threatening disease.
