MONMOUTH COUNTY – The Monmouth County Board of County Commissioners have announced that the vaccine appointments scheduled for February 19 and 20 are canceled due to the continued shipment delay.
“The County still has not gotten notification that the vaccines have even shipped yet and so we have no choice but to cancel the scheduled appointments for Friday and Saturday,” said Commissioner Director Thomas A. Arnone. “Again, we apologize for this inconvenience to those with scheduled appointments, but since Monmouth County administers every single vaccine dose that we receive as soon as we get it, we literally do not have one vaccine on hand right now.”
“Everyone that had an appointment scheduled for Wednesday, Thursday, Friday or Saturday of this week will be contacted next week to be rescheduled,” said Commissioner Deputy Director Susan M. Kiley. “For everyone who was scheduled for a second dose, it is important to note that the second dose can be administered any time between 28 and 42 days after the first dose.”

Vaccines are only being given to those who are eligible as defined by the State. It is asked to not go to a vaccination clinic without a confirmed appointment. There are no extra vaccines available at the clinics.
