2. Updates for Second Mass Vaccination Clinic: Pfizer Vaccine Being Distributed on April 19
After it was announced on Tuesday, April 13 that the Johnson & Johnson vaccine will pause its distribution, DePauw has since been in contact with the Indiana Department of Health and Hendricks Regional Health to make adjustments to the original second mass vaccination clinic, which originally planned to distribute the Johnson & Johnson vaccine on Monday, April 19.
The second mass vaccination clinic will still operate on Monday, April 19, but will instead be distributing the Pfizer vaccine. Pfizer is a two-dose COVID-19 vaccine. The required second dosage of the vaccine will be made available on campus on Monday, May 10.
The form to make appointments can be found here. Priority will be given to students who previously made an appointment for the original second vaccine clinic.
