Update on COVID-19 Vaccine Second Dose

Glouscester County

The Gloucester County Mega Vaccination Site and the State of New Jersey are currently working to accommodate all individuals without a second appointment date.

As confirmed by the State, on Friday, January 29, 2021 all individuals who have already received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine prior to January, 29, 2021 will be automatically scheduled for their second dose. These individuals should expect to receive an email that includes a QR code (matrix barcode) with the date and time of their next appointment. 

Individuals who did not give an email on the date of their first dose will get a text or phone call to schedule their second dose. 

All individuals who receive their vaccine on or after January 30, 2021, will automatically receive a second dose appointment from the State.

The State has advised that appointments will be consistent with the date on the back of the card and all appointments will be held at Gloucester County’s Mega Vaccination Site.

It’s recommended you get the second shot: 

  • Pfizer- 21 days after the first dose
  • Moderna- 28 days after the first dose 

The CDC states: if it is not feasible to adhere to the recommended interval, the second dose of Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna Covid-19 vaccines may be scheduled for administration up to 6 weeks (42 days) after the first dose. 

The Gloucester County COVID-19 Hotline can be reached Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at (856) 218-4142. Please note: this hotline will not be able to register you for a vaccine or appointment time that can only be done by visiting https://covidvaccine.nj.gov
