Those are located in Atlantic City, Meadowlands, Moorestown, Rowan College, Edison, and Rockaway, the New Jersey Department of Health made the announcement on Thursday.

The ability to walk up for an appointment is effective immediately, the state says.

It's currently estimated that 40% of the state's population over the age of 16 has been vaccinated against the virus. The state's governor Phil Murphy says that increasing that number will be key to allowing the state to reopen more and more in the coming days.

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
