From Staff Reports
ETSU Health will host several COVID-19 vaccine clinics offering primary doses and boosters throughout January.
All of the weekday clinics will be held on the second floor of East Tennessee State University’s D.P. Culp Student Center. Parking spaces in the metered lot behind the Culp Center on J. L. Seehorn Jr. Rd. have been reserved for vaccine patients.
The Saturday clinics will be held in the ballroom at the ETSU Millennium Center, located at 2001 Millennium Place. Patients may park on the third level or above in the parking garage adjacent to the Millennium Center and follow the signs to the ballroom.
Based on availability, it is the goal of ETSU Health to provide both Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson vaccines at each clinic. However, please check ETSUHealth.org prior to each clinic to verify which vaccines are available that day. Availability will be updated regularly.
The clinics are free and open to the public. Remaining dates are as follows:
Saturday, Jan. 15, 10 a.m.- 1 p.m. (Millennium Center)
Tuesday, Jan. 18, 1-4 p.m. (Culp Center)
Friday, Jan. 21, 10 a.m.-1 p.m. (Culp Center)
Thursday, Jan. 27, 1-4 p.m. (Culp Center)
Friday, Jan. 28, 10 a.m.-1 p.m. (Culp Center)
Saturday, Jan. 29, 10 a.m.-1 p.m. (Millennium Center)
The one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine is available to all persons age 18 and older.
The Pfizer vaccine is administered as a two-dose series, three weeks apart.
Pfizer will be for 12+ initial dose and 18+ with CDC recommendations on boosters at these clinics.
Please note that the 5-11 year old Pfizer will be a completely separate vaccine from the 12+ vaccine. Even though Pfizer is approved for children ages 5-11 years, Pfizer will remain at 12+ for ETSU Health clinics at these sites.
