BLACKWOOD, N.J. (CBS) — Camden County officials say vaccinations are not being rolled out as quickly as they hoped. They say plans to open a vaccination site at Camden County Community College in Blackwood have been postponed because vaccine supplies have not arrived yet.
“We’ve not received the vaccines from the federal government. Once we do receive them, that site will open and we will begin to administer vaccines to a broader group of health care personnel throughout the county,” Camden County Commissioner Director Louis Cappelli Jr. said.READ MORE: Derek Chauvin Trial: Renewed Calls For Justice Ring Throughout Philadelphia Streets Ahead Of Closing Arguments
