MOORESTOWN, NJ -- Governor Phil Murphy will be in Moorestown on Friday to visit and inspect the new Burlington County Vaccination Site at the Moorestown Mall, his office announced Thursday night.
Also on hand will be Congressman Andy Kim, State Senator Troy Singleton, Department of Health Commissioner Judy Persichilli and Interim Adjutant General and Commissioner of the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs Colonel Lisa Hou.
Senator Singleton will be receiving his first dose of the COVID vaccine during the visit in order to strongly encourage others in the African American community to get inoculated.
The Burlington County COVID-19 Vaccine Mega-Site kicked off its operations on January 15, marking a significant advancement toward slowing and ultimately ending the spread of COVID-19 in the region.
One of six “mega-sites” opening across New Jersey, the Burlington County facility is being operated through a partnership between the State of New Jersey, Burlington County and Virtua Health. The facility at the former Lord & Taylor store at the Moorestown Mall will vaccinate front-line health care workers, first responders and others in accordance with New Jersey’s phased vaccine eligibility plan.
