Johnson & Johnson vaccine
UNCSA is monitoring recent developments surrounding the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine and will follow directives of the Centers for Disease Control, Food and Drug Administration, North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services and the UNC System Office.
Approximately 350 doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine were administered on campus in two clinics held on April 1 and April 8. None of those vaccinated on campus have reported complications to health services staff.
No additional clinics utilizing the Johnson & Johnson vaccine are scheduled at this time.
