N.J.’s 6 vaccination megasites now taking walk-ins (UPDATED)

Remember when you had to get up at 4 a.m. and keep hitting refresh on your keyboard, hoping to get a spot at a COVID-19 vaccination site — any vaccination site — in an effort that reminded some of trying to get concert tickets? Those days are over.

The state’s six megasites for the COVID-19 vaccine will now be accepting walk-in appointments moving forward, the Department of Health said Thursday.

Any New Jersey resident is welcome to go to any of the six megasites, according to the DOH.

Here are the specific locations and hours of the six state mega vaccination sites:

The change comes as the state’s supply of vaccines is now greater than demand.

As of Thursday morning, nearly 4.2 million residents have received at least one shot. Just under 3 million (2,959,204) residents are fully vaccinated.
