COVID vaccination update

April 15, 2021

Johnson & Johnson vaccine halted. In accordance with the April 13 recommendation from the CDC and FDA, Iowa State University is not administering any J&J vaccine doses, pending further information and guidance from public health agencies.

Impact on student vaccinations. We are fortunate that the Iowa Department of Public Health has allocated Pfizer vaccine to ISU until more is known about the Johnson & Johnson doses. This has made it possible for the university to continue our on-campus vaccination clinic at State Gym. Impacted students were notified of the change in vaccine type and when to report for their second dose.

Vaccine supply fluctuation. We will continue to vaccinate as many students and employees as possible based on our vaccine supply. Sudden scheduling changes for patients and/or vaccine clinic staff may be needed in response to vaccine supply fluctuations. We will communicate any changes as quickly as possible. Your flexibility and understanding are appreciated. Unless you receive notice of a change, please report for your confirmed vaccine appointment or clinic shift. 

Information will be provided to faculty, staff, and postdocs about receiving a vaccination on campus as doses are available. You do not need to call Thielen Student Health Center. If you can receive a vaccine through another provider, please do so.
