The UNI Student Health Clinic will hold a COVID-19 vaccine clinic on campus in the West Gym, Tuesday, May 4 from 12:00-3:30 PM with the single-dose Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine. This vaccine is available for students, faculty, and staff as well as their immediate household family members who are 18 and older.
Following a thorough safety review, CDC and FDA have recommended the use of Johnson & Johnson's Janssen (J&J/Janssen) COVID-19 vaccine to resume in the United States, effective April 23, 2021. However, women younger than 50 years old should be aware of the rare risk of blood clots with low platelets after vaccination and that other COVID-19 vaccines are available where this risk has not been seen.
The J&J/Janssen vaccine is by appointment only. Do not call the Student Health Clinic to schedule. We are using Blackthorn Sandbox scheduling software so the appointment confirmation email message will include "Sandbox" in the subject line.
