JOHNSON CITY (April 9, 2021) – ETSU Health will host COVID-19 vaccine clinics on Saturday, April 10, and Tuesday, April 13, by appointment only. These clinics are open to anyone age 18 and older, regardless of health condition.
The ETSU Health vaccine clinic will administer Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen COVID-19 vaccine, which only requires one shot. Appointments are available online at ETSUHealth.org for April 10 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and on April 13 from 3-7 p.m.
The vaccine clinics will be held in the ballroom at ETSU’s Millennium Center, located at 2001 Millennium Place. Patients with appointments may park on the third level or above in the parking garage adjacent to the Millennium Center and follow the signs to the ballroom.
The only requirement for this clinic is that patients be at least 18 years old, as the Johnson & Johnson vaccine has not been approved for anyone younger than 18.
Faculty, students and staff from ETSU Health colleges, including Quillen College of Medicine, Bill Gatton College of Pharmacy, the College of Nursing and the College of Public Health, will be administering the vaccines and assisting with patient intake and registration.
