COVID-19 Vaccine Hesitancy

There is a lot of information being shared about the COVID-19 vaccine through every possible communication channel but unfortunately, all of this information isn’t always factual. This misinformation creates unnecessary fear and a hesitancy to receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.

Our Chief Medical Officer of Hunterdon Healthcare Partners, Geralyn Prosswimmer, MD, sat down with us to address many of the vaccine-related questions and misinformation causing many people to choose not to get vaccinated. In each video, Dr. Prosswimmer addresses a specific question or concern about the vaccine currently circulating online, in the media, or even in conversations with friends and family. Please take a moment to watch each video below and feel free to share them with others to help us better educate each other and our community.

More importantly, if you would like to schedule a vaccine appointment you can conveniently do so by visiting our Online Scheduler (Click Here) or by calling our Vaccination Scheduling Center at (908) 237-4238 weekdays from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.

We are offering convenient first dose COVID-19 vaccination clinics on the second Wednesday of every month from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm, July 14, 2021, through September 8, 2021. Second dose appointments will be scheduled at the first dose appointment.
