TRENTON – Six mega sites throughout New Jersey will serve as vaccination hubs for phased priority groups, part of a critical network of over 200 sites tasked with carrying out the state’s COVID-19 vaccination plan fairly and equitably, the New Jersey Department of Health (NJDOH) announced today.
The six state-coordinated sites are expected to begin opening in early January and will immediately be in position to vaccinate front-line healthcare workers and then continue in a phased approach depending on the supply of vaccine to New Jersey. After these phases are complete, then the general public will be eligible for vaccination. The timing of the progression among the groups depends on the supply of vaccine to the state.
“Building out a core infrastructure of vaccination sites is a critical component of our strategic and efficient deployment of a COVID-19 vaccine and is a key element of New Jersey’s recovery,” said Governor Murphy. “These statewide sites will be in position to vaccinate front line health care workers who are part of the 1a category and will continue for each successive group of New Jerseyans that becomes eligible for vaccination.”
The sites include:
Atlantic County: Atlantic City Convention Center
Bergen County: Racetrack at Meadowlands, East Rutherford
Burlington County: Moorestown Mall
Gloucester County: Rowan College of South Jersey, Sewell
Middlesex County: New Jersey Convention and Exposition Center, Edison
Morris County: Rockaway Townsquare
“New Jersey will roll out COVID-19 vaccines step-by-step to serve all who live, work or study in the state,” said Health Commissioner Judith Persichilli. “New Jersey’s phasing will ensure that limited vaccines are distributed in a fair and equitable manner. With each successive wave, we will get closer to being able to open our vaccination sites to the general public.”
Alert: FBI Reports Armed Protests Planned for All 50 States
A bombshell report this afternoon from ABC News: “The FBI has ‘received information about an identified armed group intending to travel to Washington, DC on 16 January. They have warned that if Congress attempts to remove POTUS via the 25th Amendment a huge uprising will occur,’ according to a bulletin obtained by ABC,” reports Aaron Katersky.
A reporter at today’s COVID-19 briefing said alleged insurrectionists plan an action at the Capitol on January 17th.
“We need to bat 1K every day and trust that those who do show up do so in a peaceful manner,” said State Police Colonel Pat Callahan.
“FBI now reports in a bulletin ‘Armed protests are being planned at all 50 state capitols from 16 January through at least 20 January, and at the US Capitol from 17 January through 20 January.”
The FBI is seeking information that will assist in identifying individuals who are actively instigating violence in Washington, DC. The FBI is accepting tips and digital media depicting rioting and violence in the U.S. Capitol Building and surrounding area in Washington, DC, on January 6, 2021.
He also decried those who refuse to identify and condemn those perpetrating the heinous act of treason.
“When you excuse their actions, you empower them to act again,” said Murphy.
