TCAT Elizabethton will be holding a drive through COVID-19 vaccine clinic for individuals 18 years of age or older on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Main Campus, 426 Highway 91 north, Elizabethton.Jeremy Tromblay, RN, and Christy Greene, RN, TCAT Clinical Instructors, are the event coordinators. “We will be giving out the one dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine free of charge. Look for the tent when you enter the parking lot. We will provide information on site. Appointments are not necessary but feel free to sign up at signupgenius.com,” Tromblay said.
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, according to Tromblay.
The event is cosponsored by TCAT Elizabethton, the Carter County Health Department and the Tennessee National Guard.
