Bryce Jordan Center Clinic To Begin Administering Moderna Vaccines

The Bryce Jordan Center’s recently opened COVID-19 vaccine clinic will resume operations this week and begin administering the Moderna vaccine, according to an email sent to signed-up patients Wednesday.

Unlike the single-shot Johnson & Johnson shot, Moderna’s vaccine requires two doses spaced four weeks apart. The Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency, which operates the BJC’s clinic, said it’ll automatically schedule patients for a second dose once they receive their first.

Previously, the site had administered only the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. PEMA said it’ll use Moderna’s doses until further notice.

Following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Pennsylvania temporarily halted all use of the Johnson & Johnson shot until at least April 20. Six women aged between 18 and 48 years old reported “rare and severe” blood clots after receiving the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

The BJC’s COVID-19 vaccine clinic opened on Friday, April 9, with enough capacity to administer 600 Johnson & Johnson shots per day. At this time, its capacity to facilitate Moderna vaccines remains unclear.

The BJC’s site offers appointments Thursday through Monday each week. Registration for appointments at the clinic is available at pema.trackmyvaccine.com or by calling 1-844-545-3450.

All Pennsylvania adults, including Penn State students, are now eligible to book appointments.
