NJ First Lady Tammy Murphy receives her first COVID-19 vaccination at the Atlantic City Megasite, Friday, April 9, while Gov. Phil Murphy stands by.

The Atlantic County COVID-19 Vaccination Megasite being operated by AtlantiCare will offer up to 700 walk-in vaccination appointments 1-3 p.m. Wednesday through Friday, April 21-23.

Members of the community who are eligible for the vaccine, which now includes all those 16 and older, will be able to register for their vaccination on site. A parent or guardian must accompany those under age 18.

Walk-in vaccinations will be first come, first-served as vaccine supplies last. Those who have registered online and made an appointment through vaccination.atlanticare.org will be prioritized.

Should individuals seeking a walk-in appointment during the designated times not secure an appointment, the megasite team will make them an appointment for the following or another convenient day.

“We still encourage all members of the community to schedule an appointment online,” said AtlantiCare Clinical Manager Sherrie Bragg, MSN, RN.  “We are scheduling appointments through May 15.”

The megasite is located in the Atlantic City Convention Center, 1 Convention Blvd. in Atlantic City. Parking is free.
