Cherry Hill Area ShopRites Have The Coronavirus Vaccine

·4 min read

CHERRY HILL, NJ — On Monday, ShopRite released its list of the 39 ShopRite pharmacies in New Jersey that now have the coronavirus vaccine, and two ShopRites in the Cherry Hill area are on the list.

The ShopRites in Berlin and Medford both the Moderna vaccine in stock and ready to inject. The Berlin ShopRite is located at 200 Route 73, and the Medford ShopRite is located at 208 Route 70.

The Moderna vaccine requires two shots spaced 28 days apart. For more information on eligibility or to make an appointment, visit vaccines.shoprite.com or download the ShopRite Pharmacy mobile app and use the online scheduler. Due to demand, appointment availability may be limited.

ShopRite partnered with the federal government (the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services) to give out the vaccine. There is no charge to receive the vaccination at any of these ShopRites.

As of Monday, Jan. 4 the vaccine is in stock; all 39 stores received their initial shipment.

You must make an appointment to get the vaccine, and currently, vaccines are only available to those in group 1A, which is healthcare workers and nursing home/long-term care residents, according to the federal government's rules.

However, that list of healthcare workers is much broader than many realize, and includes home health aides, those who work in jails and prisons and even those who work at medical marijuana sites, as the state of New Jersey qualifies them as healthcare workers.

ShopRite is owned by Wakefern Food Corp., based in Keasbey, NJ (Woodbridge). It is the largest supermarket cooperative in the United States. There are 280 ShopRite supermarkets located throughout New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Delaware and Maryland.

"We are excited to be part of the initial stages of this unprecedented public health campaign," said Jeffrey Mondelli, RPh, Vice President of Pharmacy, Health & Beauty at Wakefern.

Currently, vaccines are not available for the general public. However, ShopRite anticipates expanding access to the vaccine as soon as the government enters the next phase of the vaccine's distribution.

The next phase is 1B, which is front-line essential workers and individuals over 75, followed by 1C, which is those older than 65 and those 16-64 with medical conditions that increase the risk for severe COVID-19.
