1. Alterations for Second Mass Vaccine Clinic: J&J Vaccine Usage Paused
After the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (C.D.C.) and Indiana Department of Health announced on the morning of Tuesday, April 13 to pause usage of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, a mass email was sent out by DePauw University stating that they are working to provide alternative vaccination plans in order to still provide a clinic on campus.
The second mass vaccine clinic was scheduled to be on Monday, April 19 and to distribute the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, just as the first clinic had. It is unclear if the second mass vaccine clinic will be rescheduled or what alternative plans they are thinking about putting in place. Students, faculty and the local community will be provided with this information as soon as it is available.
