Mega-Site FAQs


General

Where is the Burlington County COVID-19 Vaccine Mega-Site?

The new mega-site is located off Nixon Road in Mount Laurel as part of the East Gate Square Shopping Center. The mega-site is located inside a former A.C. Moore store, adjacent to Home Depot and Party City. Onsite signage will guide you to the correct location and ample parking is available. Additional details will be provided with your vaccine appointment confirmation. (Please note: the former vaccine mega-site at the Moorestown Mall remains closed.)
 

When is the mega-site open?

The mega-site is currently open Tuesday through Saturday. The hours of operation are as follows:

Sunday: closed
Monday: closed
Tuesday: 9 am to 4 pm
Wednesday: 9 am to 4 pm
Thursday:
11 am to 6 pm
Friday:
11 am to 6 pm
Saturday:
9 am to 4 pm

 

Who is eligible to be vaccinated at this time?

All people who live, work, or receive an education in New Jersey and are 5 years old or older are now eligible. Children ages 5 to 17 are eligible for the Pfizer vaccine only.

 

Is the mega-site only available to Burlington County residents?

No. The mega-site serves the entire region. 

 

Are walk-up vaccinations available?

Limited walk-up vaccinations are available Tuesdays through Saturdays during operating hours. We strongly suggest scheduling an appointment for the best experience possible. The mega-site's daily hours may change. Scheduling an appointment is the best way to ensure that it is open when you arrive.

 

What is the cost for being vaccinated?

There will be no charges or co-pays to vaccine recipients. As authorized, insurance providers will be billed for vaccine administration. For those without insurance, vaccination is free of charge.

 

What should I bring to my vaccine appointments?

Please bring photo identification and a health insurance card, if possible. 

 

Will I get to choose what version of the vaccine I receive? 

The Pfizer vaccine will be provided to anyone 18 and older receiving an initial vaccine series at the mega-site. Children between ages 5 and 17 are only eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccine. The Moderna vaccine will be available as a booster (or third dose for people with compromised immunity) on Tuesdays only.

Can I schedule appointments for other people? 

One person can schedule appointments for multiple eligible people; however, you can only schedule appointments for one person at a time. Unlike concert or airline tickets, for example, you cannot schedule for multiple people simultaneously. Also, someone scheduling on behalf of another person must enter that person's personal information and not his/her own. For instance, a wife could schedule an appointment for her husband, but she must enter his information into the registration form. Likewise, parents may schedule for a child, but must choose the "Continue as a Guest" option, and then enter the child's information. 

Should I schedule two appointments, one for my first dose and one for my second? 

Not right away. You should only schedule one appointment in advance. The date of a second-dose appointment will depend upon which version of the vaccine you receive at the first appointment. When you attend your first appointment, the onsite staff will assist you in scheduling/confirming the date and time of your second visit, if applicable. If you receive your first dose via an unscheduled walk-up visit, you will be given an appointment for your second dose at that time (if you receive the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine). 

  

Can I reschedule my vaccine appointment?

Absolutely. If you're unable to make your appointment, please email us at covidmegasite@virtua.org with your name, date of birth, the date and time of your original appointment, and an optimal date/time for rescheduling.

 

I’m sick with COVID before or in-between my vaccination doses, when should I reschedule? 

If you are sick with COVID or contract the virus before your first dose or in between your scheduled doses – you can receive the vaccine after you complete your isolation period directed by your physician. Once you've completed isolation and recovered from the virus, follow the rescheduling process in the answer above. 

 

What do those with special needs, or their caregivers, need to be aware of during their appointments?

Virtua and its partners want to ensure they have a positive experience. Please see our helpful vaccine appointment tips. Let the mega-site staff know if you or someone you care for would benefit from the mega-site’s sensory room by calling 856-206-4433 ahead of your appointment. You can also use this phone number to request an interpreter for individuals who are deaf, hard of hearing, and/or use American Sign Language. The more advance notice you can provide, the better.

Booster Doses

Who is eligible to receive a booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine?

Those 12 and older who received an initial series of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines qualify for a booster if five months or more have passed since their original doses. (Those ages 12 to 17 are only eligible for the Pfizer vaccine.)

 

Those who received an initial shot of the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine two months ago or more are also eligible for a booster.

 

Please consult the CDC website for greater detail on eligibility and timing.

 

What should I bring to my appointment?

Please remember to bring your CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card to your booster appointment. The mega-site staff will update it for you. Please bring a photo identification and health insurance card as well, if possible.

 

Will I get to choose what version of the vaccine I receive as a booster?

The mega-site will primarily carry the Pfizer vaccine, meaning most guests will receive that version of the vaccine as their booster. The Moderna vaccine will only be available on Tuesdays, and will only be administered as a booster or third-dose. The mega-site does not presently carry the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

 

Is it better to “mix and match” vaccine types or remain consistent?

The CDC's recommendations allows vaccine recipients to "mix and match" dosing for booster shots. There are no known adverse reactions to different combinations of the COVID-19 vaccines. Speak with your health care provider for a personalized recommendation. Remember: children ages 5 to 17 are only eligible for the Pfizer vaccine.

 

Is the booster shot made of the same ingredients as the initial vaccines? Is the dosage the same?

The vaccines contain the same ingredients, regardless of whether they are administered as part of the initial series or as a booster dose. The dosage may be different, however. The Moderna vaccine is half the original dose when administered as a booster. 

 

Should I pursue a booster shot if I am eligible?

Yes. Emerging evidence indicates that vaccination is less effective at preventing infection over time. Boosters are intended to increase a person’s immune response.

 

Pediatric Vaccinations

Are children eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine?

Children ages 5 to 11 are now eligible to receive the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. This is the only vaccine presently authorized for this age demographic.

 

Who can accompany a child to his/her vaccine appointment?

The mega-site requires an adult – preferably a parent or guardian – accompany children to the vaccine appointment and that they remain together at all times. Grandparents, older siblings, babysitters, and so forth can be acceptable alternatives, but a parent/guardian must be reachable by phone should questions arise or remote authorization be necessary.

 

How many doses should children receive?

Children, like adults, should receive two doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. These vaccines doses should be administered 21 days apart, or slightly more. Children ages 12 and older are eligible for a Pfizer booster five months after their initial vaccines. 

 

Is the dosage the same for children and adults?

No. The dosage for children ages 5 to 11 is one-third of the dosage administered to adults. Children ages 12 to 18 should receive the adult dosage.

 

Is the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine safe for children?

An FDA-reviewed study of more than 2,000 children suggest that the vaccine is 100 percent effective at preventing COVID-19 in this age group. Similar to teens and adults, children may experience temporary side effects, such as fatigue, headache, and chills. These symptoms typically last 1 to 3 days; some people experience no symptoms.

 

Can a child receive multiple vaccines in a short time period?

The CDC said that children (and adults) do not need to space out the timing of the COVID-19 vaccine and other vaccinations.

 

What should parents/guardians bring to their child’s vaccine appointment?

Parents/guardians are asked to bring a form of identification that clearly states the child’s date of birth or age, if possible.

 

When will COVID-19 vaccines be approved for those ages 4 and younger?

Clinical trials are underway. There is no set date at this time.

 

What should I do if I have concerns about the safety of the vaccine as it pertains to my child?

The American Academy of Pediatrics has issued its support of the COVID-19 vaccine for children ages 5 and older. For specific questions and concerns, consult trusted, verified sources and speak to your child’s pediatrician.
