Patch News Article on Vaccine Availability

Please note that the Ocean County Health Dept COVID-19 vaccination clinics are now being restricted to Ocean County residents. (Out of county residents that have a second dose appointment scheduled with us will be honored.) Ocean County residents will be required to have ID showing proof of residency

• You MUST have an appointment to receive a COVID-19 vaccine at any of the Ocean County Health Department’s (OCHD) vaccination sites. (Toms River High North & Southern Regional Middle School). The OCHD does not offer any reserve (leftover) vaccine at the end of the day. Therefore, anyone who shows up at the end of the day – or anytime – without an appointment will be turned away.

• Appointments are NONTRANSFERABLE! Only the person named on the appointment will be able to receive the COVID-19 vaccine at that specific date/time. Please do NOT send anyone else in your place – they will be turned away.

• Anyone who received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at one of the OCHD vaccination sites can expect to receive their second dose email within 2 weeks of receiving their first dose. The second email will direct you to a link to schedule a second dose appointment.

Please visit www.ochd.org for available appointments. Please be reminded that appointments are LIMITED DUE TO A SHORTAGE OF VACCINE! The OCHD advises you check in frequently as appointments will only open at this moment in time when there is a cancellation and then the schedule page window will close.

OCHD appreciates your patience as we await additional vaccine. Thank you.
