“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.”
