TRENTON – New Jersey will begin localizing its Covid vaccination efforts, ending use of the state’s megasites, Gov. Phil Murphy announced at his June 2 Covid briefing. 

The state’s nearest megasite to Cape May County, the Atlantic City Convention Center, issued its final phase of first doses May 28, with the plan to end second doses and close the site June 19, Murphy said. Another close-by site, Rowan College of Gloucester County (RCGC), has similar closing dates – May 26 for first doses, June 18 for second doses. 

Since opening, Murphy said the state’s megasites have supplied nearly 2 million doses and have fully vaccinated over 950,000 people.
