After the initial excitement of (finally) booking that Covid-19 vaccine appointment, some people start to feel a little nervous. But now, Covid-19 mega-sites at Rowan College of South Jersey and Moorestown Mall want to make it a little easier on everyone – especially people with special needs.

Health officials at the mega-sites teamed up with Rowan Integrated Special Needs (RISN) Center to create a low-sensory room for people with physical, developmental, behavioral or emotional disabilities to get their vaccine in a calmer environment. The hustle of people all in one place moving from station to station to receive their vaccine can be overwhelming for some, says RISN Director Jennifer LeComte, DO, so this allows vaccine distribution to be more inclusive to the communities that need them.
