On Monday, August 2, ETSU Health will host a free Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine clinic in the Library’s Jones Meeting Room from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. This single-dose vaccine is available for free to anyone age 18 and older. No appointment is required, you can just walk in!
You don’t need to bring anything with you except an ID, if possible. (And fun fact: the first 20 people to receive the shot will get a free Chick-fil-A sandwich voucher!)
Donna Noland, manager of the ETSU Health COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic, says, “Throughout the summer, ETSU Health has offered regular clinics on our campus and throughout the community to reach as many people as we can with the COVID-19 vaccine. The Johnson City Public Library is an important community hub and a wonderful resource for our city, so we are excited to partner with them on August 2 to provide the vaccine to library patrons and anyone who chooses to stop by for the free vaccine.”
The ETSU Health vaccine clinic at JCPL 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 ages 18 and older. You can find details about the decision here.
