JOHNSON CITY — ETSU Health will host several upcoming Janssen Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine clinics throughout July. This single-dose vaccine is free and available to anyone age 18 and older. No appointments are required. The July clinics are as follows:

• Thursday-Friday, July 8-9
• Wednesday-Friday, July 14-16
• Wednesday-Friday, July 21-23

All of these clinics will be on the second floor of the D.P. Culp Student Center from 2-4 p.m. Enter on the second-floor entrance off of Seehorn Road (below the third-floor ramp).

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.
