Governor Phil Murphy that select Rite Aid locations will be used as additional vaccination sites but the specific locations are not being released quite yet.

The hope is that Rite Aid will release the locations next week when the vaccine is actually available and ready to go.

"Since most Americans live within 5 miles of a pharmacy, this program will expand our footprint in areas of high need and is poised to receive direct allocation from the federal government without tapping into the state supply. This is in addition to our state's supply," Murphy said.

And just like many other vaccination sites, they will be available by appointment only.

"Our priority is to administer the COVID-19 vaccines we are allocated as quickly, safely, and efficiently as possible. The increase in available doses in our communities is welcome news, but we anticipate demand will continue to outpace supply for the foreseeable future," the company said in a written statement.

We will keep you updated as more information is released regarding the COVID-19 Vaccine.

Thank you again to Dan Alexander at NJ 101.5.
