Zip codes should not matter in vaccine rollout, says Bramnick

Assembly Republican Leader Jon Bramnick is calling on Gov. Phil Murphy to stop county vaccine distribution sites from limiting availability of coronavirus vaccines to county residents and workers.

“Zip codes should not matter if we are going to successfully vaccinate everyone that needs it,” said Bramnick (R-Union). “Why should an 85-year-old with underlying conditions be denied while a healthy 65-year-old who lives one block away gets the vaccine? Governor Murphy needs to reverse this horrendous policy pitting counties against each other. Priority should not be based on where you live.”
