ETSU resumes vaccination clinics

From Staff Reports

ETSU Health will host three Janssen Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine clinics, which are free and open to anyone age 18 or older. Two of the three clinics will be available to walk-in patients, with no appointments required.

The upcoming clinics are as follows (please note the new location for April 30 and May 4):

Friday, April 30, noon-2 p.m.
Martha Street Culp Auditorium, D.P. Culp Student Center
No appointment is required.

Saturday, May 1, noon- 2 p.m.
Millennium Center, 2001 Millennium Place
Appointments are required at ETSUHealth.org. Those without access to the internet may call 423-439-EVAX (3829) to assist with scheduling.

Tuesday, May 4, noon- 2 p.m.
Martha Street Culp Auditorium, D.P. Culp Student Center
No appointment is required.
The ETSU Health vaccine clinic will administer Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen COVID-19 vaccine, which only requires one shot.

Following a pause of the Janssen Johnson & Johnson vaccine and a thorough safety review, the CDC and the FDA determined that the recommended pause of the vaccine in the U.S. should be lifted and use of the vaccine should resume. The FDA has determined that the available data show that the vaccine’s known and potential benefits outweigh its known and potential risks in individuals 18 years of age and older. More details about the decision is available here.

Faculty, students and staff from ETSU Health colleges, including Quillen College of Medicine, Bill Gatton College of Pharmacy, the College of Nursing and the College of Public Health, will be administering the vaccines and assisting with patient intake and registration.

To register for the ETSU Health vaccine clinic on Saturday, May 1, visit ETSUHealth.org. Those without internet access may call (423) 439-EVAX (3829) to assist with scheduling. Patients with questions about the vaccine should contact their physician.
