Today’s student vaccine clinic at the University of Northern Iowa will not be held after the CDC and FDA recommended a pause this morning on the use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
Additionally, the Iowa Department of Public Health has advised all Iowa healthcare providers and pharmacies to pause all J&J clinics until further notice.
No J&J vaccine has been administered on campus. Today was the only day this week that the J&J vaccine was scheduled to be used. Students, faculty and staff who registered for the remaining days this week will receive the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.
The approximately 500 students who had registered for today’s clinic were notified this morning that it was canceled. Those who are interested are able to register pending availability of this week’s remaining Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine allotment UNI received.
