(Sewell, NJ)—The Gloucester County Mega Vaccination Site reached it’s 250,000 vaccinations milestone on Thursday, April 1, 2021.


“Our site has been averaging close to 6,000 vaccinations a day,” said Director Robert M. Damminger. “We are serving our county and country with pride. We reached our 100,000-vaccination milestone on Sunday, February 28, and a little over a month later, we’re at a quarter of a million that is not an easy feat, but we are up for any challenge.”


“Every vaccination we do brings us one step closer to normalcy. I am extremely proud of the work that continues to be put in at the Gloucester County Mega Site. The site will only keep improving and will continue to be the best place to get your COVID-19 vaccination in the State of New Jersey,” said Senate President Steve Sweeney.


The 250,000 vaccination was administered to Monica Kelly of Mantua, Gloucester County, NJ. Kelly is currently a teacher at Clearview Middle School.


The Gloucester County Mega Vaccination Site is supported by the County of Gloucester, Gloucester County Health Department, Gloucester County Office of Emergency Management, Gloucester County EMS, Happy Healthy You Family Medicine, the New Jersey State Health Department, National Guard 44th Infantry Brigade, FEMA, Rowan College of South Jersey and Rowan University.


“Without the support of all of the agencies at the site, this would not be possible,” said Commissioner Jim Jefferson. “We continue to push ourselves to be the best, most efficient site in the state because we know how important this vaccine is to everyone receiving it.”


Gloucester County would like to thank Proof Productions, Inc. for donating the set and production for our 250,000-vaccination celebration.
