Upcoming Eligibility Changes

As of Monday, April 19th, all individuals aged 16 and older will be eligible for vaccination.

***Please Note: Currently only the Pfizer vaccine is authorized for emergency use in individuals 16 years or older. The Moderna and Johnson and Johnson (Janssen) vaccines are authorized for emergency use in individuals 18 years or older. ***

The Burlington County Health Department will no longer be receiving vaccine for new first dose clinics, as we will move to further assist the mega site at the Moorestown Mall. 


If you are looking to register for a vaccination, please try one of the three options below. Vaccine is still in limited supply, so we ask for your patience in obtaining a vaccine appointment.
