PUMC Hosts COVID Vaccination Clinic (11/30/22)

Posted by on Nov 14, 2022 in 1-WHY, EventAnnouncement, FEATURED, Mission: AroundTowns, Neighbors | 0 comments

One of the blessings given to our church is our building.  We have a large Fellowship Hall (“gym”) which can be used by the community.  By sharing our facility with outside organizations, we partner in the efforts to improve the lives of all people. As agents of Christ in our community, strengthening families and improving the Mental Health and Physical Health of all people is part of our church’s goal.

In the past we have hosted the Gloucester County’s Flue shot clinics, and we continue to host Blood Drives administered by the American Red Cross.  Our Fellowship Hall is also a polling place, a meeting place for Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, and a place where people struggling with addictions can find support (via NA’s “Smile Today” meetings).

 

The Coronavirus and the disease that it causes (Covid-19) remains a threat to the physical well-being of our community.  Currently (11/14/22) Gloucester County is currently averaging 33 new cases of Covid each day.  That’s much lower than the 900 cases we were seeing earlier in the year, but vaccinations remain to be our key defense against this disease.  

Refreshing the vaccinations with boosters is also key, since the effectiveness of the vaccinations declines over time.  Additionally, the latest boosters have been tailored to defend against the latest variants of the disease.

 

In partnership with the Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine, we are hosting a Covid-19 vaccination clinic at our church.  It’s a “pop-up” clinic; reservations aren’t needed.  And- it’s for free!  The Rowan medical staff will bring the latest Moderna and Pfizer bivalent vaccines, and administer either primary doses or boosters as needed. 

Here are the details:
