The immunizations are required for all children attending preschool or
childcare centers or K-12 schools in New Jersey.
Burlington County Department of Health Director Dr. Herb Conaway urges
eligible families to take advantage of the free vaccine service offered by the
County and all parents to take the necessary steps to make sure their
children’s immunizations are up to date.
“While we do not have an FDA-approved vaccine for the novel coronavirus, we
do have vaccines against seasonal flu and against several serious illnesses,
including measles, hepatitis B, meningitis and polio. We can’t afford to ignore
these diseases, Dr. Conaway said. “The last thing we need is an outbreak of
pandemic flu, the measles or some other preventable disease during ongoing COVID
crisis. This winter potentially deadly pandemic flu will arrive with
resurgent COVID-19. The twin viral dangers could cause tragic loss
of life and overwhelm our state’s healthcare systems. We can prevent that
outcome by getting vaccinated, masking up, washing hands and maintaining social
distance. Let’s work together to stamp out COVID19.”
