Senator Jim Holzapfel and Assemblymen Greg McGuckin and John Catalano are outraged at the recent decision by Governor Murphy’s Administration to pull 400 vaccine doses from the Ocean County Health Department’s weekly supply.  The 10th District Legislators are calling this a political move by the Governor which continues to hurt Ocean County’s senior citizen population.  The lawmakers have released the following statement on this issue:

Sen. Jim Holzapfel, Asm. Greg McGuckin and Asm. John Catalano are calling Murphy’s decision to pull 1,600 vaccine doses per month from Ocean County a political move that continues to hurt our senior citizen population. (Pixabay)

“It’s shameful and appalling that our Governor would pull a political stunt such as this with our seniors who are relying on these vital doses.  With the number of senior citizens in Ocean County, the Governor should know that those 400 vaccines have already been spoken for by our residents. We are demanding that Governor Murphy immediately restore Ocean County’s vaccine supply.

“This is yet another example of how the Administration’s vaccine rollout plan has been a complete failure for our senior residents.  It’s been one hurdle after another for our seniors who have endured the long wait for appointments, lack of supply and difficulty accessing mega sites.  Now they must witness the Governor cutting 400 doses from the Ocean County Health Department’s supply, which are rightfully theirs.  It’s more than wrong it’s playing God with people’s health.”
