Aviation Museum hosts vaccination clinic | Middle Canton
CAPE MAY AIRPORT, LOWER TOWNSHP – Naval Air Station Wildwood (NASW) Aviation Museum hosted the North Cape May ACME Vaccination Clinic on Thursday April 15th. ACME pharmacy staff distributed vaccines to approximately 400 participants. Museum staff received numerous calls from interested locals after ACME announced that vaccines would be available. Participants at this clinic will return on May 6 for their second vaccine.
With the rollout of vaccinations nationwide, the museum will continue its regular programming as people begin to feel more comfortable in public places. Museum events 2021 include a four-part virtual lecture series that takes place in May, “Wings & Things” on June 26, AirFest over Labor Day weekend, and Christmas at the Hangar on November 27. The NASW is now open at 50% of its capacity, and again this summer will keep the doors in the open position, which allows for better air circulation.
Naval Air Station Wildwood Aviation Museum is located inside Historic Hangar # 1 at Cape May Airport. The site was formerly Naval Air Station Wildwood, which served as a WWII dive bomber training center. The museum is dedicated to the 42 airmen who perished while training at Naval Air Station Wildwood between 1943 and 1945. The current museum hours are Monday through Friday, 10 am to 4 pm.
