The Mercer County Health Department says appointments are available every Thursday for COVID-19 immunizations for adults over 18 years of age. The vaccines will be the Moderna and Johnson and Johnson vaccines while supplies last.

There will be a COVID-19 Pfizer clinic on Tuesday, July 27th from 5 until 7pm. The second dose will be administered on August 18th. All administrations will be by appointment only to ensure there is plenty of vaccine.

Wright Memorial Physicians’ Group in Trenton will be offering the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine to all area residents 18 and older on Friday, July 9, and Friday, July 16.

The Johnson & Johnson vaccine only requires one shot. Patients must plan to be monitored for 15 minutes after receiving the vaccine. Appointments are required.
