New Jersey based Inspira Health has announced that it will reschedule appointments for first doses of the COVID-19 vaccine because of a supply shortage.
The move is effective for appointments already scheduled for Saturday and beyond at Inspira’s hospital vaccination clinics in Mullica Hill and Vineland.
For those who already received their first dose from Inspira, second doses will still be administered by the healthcare provider, the company confirmed.

Opioid epidemic in one chart – correlation conflated with causation
There is no cause-and-effect relationship between prescribing and overdose mortality. But millions of patients are being denied safe and effective pain care.
Seniors over age 62 are prescribed opioids for pain three times more often than youth under age 19. But youth have overdose rates three times higher than seniors. No medical model can explain these demographics.
