Executive Q&A
With a coronavirus vaccine approved and out for distribution, how confident are you this pandemic is one step closer to being over?

“The coronavirus vaccine provides hope to our health care heroes that we have an opportunity to temper the speed with which this virus has infected and even claimed lives in our communities. However, this pandemic is not going to be over until we have a cure. The vaccine will be a large step forward to mitigate the current crisis, but we still need to wear our masks, wash our hands and be socially distant.”
Eric Sztejman, MD, ICU medical director
Virtua Marlton Hospital

“The coronavirus vaccine has proven to be very effective. However, we need an aggressive campaign to immunize the public and to educate everyone about the importance of getting vaccinated. We have fought this virus with the community’s support of social distancing and widespread masking. Together with immunization, we will be successful in defeating the virus.”
The Camden County Freeholder Board is providing an additional $5 million to the Camden County CARES Small Business Grant Program. These funds will be distributed to the 3,100 small businesses and nonprofits that have already received grant funding and provide a 20 percent increase over the initial grant amount.

Gov. Phil Murphy signed a new executive order stating that all New Jersey residents who choose to receive the COVID-19 vaccine will be enrolled into New Jersey’s vaccine registry. The registry currently allows all residents born before Jan. 1, 1998 to opt into the program, and residents born after this date are automatically enrolled. However, regardless of birth date, any individual who receives the COVID-19 vaccine will be enrolled in the registry automatically. Individuals will be allowed to opt out of the registry 30 days after the expiration of the public health emergency.
