“We are excited to be part of the initial stages of this unprecedented public health campaign as we begin vaccinating healthcare workers who are on the front lines in the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Jeffrey Mondelli, RPh, Vice President of Pharmacy, Health & Beauty at Wakefern Food Corp., the logistics, distribution and merchandising arm for ShopRite stores.

The store locations were chosen in coordination with the New Jersey State Department of Health, Mondelli said.

Vaccinations are available by appointment only, while supplies last. There is no charge to receive the vaccination.
