Johnson & Johnson Vaccine Update 4/13/21:

Due to possible adverse events which could be associated with the Johnson and Johnson (Jannsen) COVID-19 vaccine, the CDC and FDA have suspended its use until further notice. The ATU Health and Wellness Center will be pausing vaccine distribution and will be closely following the guidance of the CDC and the FDA. Currently, the CDC is investigating six cases in the United States in which recipients of the Johnson and Johnson COVID-19 vaccine later developed a rare type of blood clot. All suspected cases have been associated in females from the ages of 18 to 48. Additionally, symptoms associated with these blood clots appeared 6 to 13 days after vaccination in all cases. Early analysis of the available data suggest that these events are extremely rare. However, recipients of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine who develop any side effects including severe headache, shortness of breath, abdominal pain, or leg pain within three weeks of vaccination should contact their health care provider. For more information or any questions, please contact the ATU Health and Wellness Center 479-968-0329. We continue recommending that individuals take vaccines that are available to them.   Visit https://vaccinefinder.org/ for more information about vaccine providers in your area.

Visit https://www.cdc.gov/media/releases/2021/s0413-JJ-vaccine.html for more information about the Johnson and Johnson vaccine.

In accordance with Arkansas Department of Health (ADH) guidelines, all Arkansas Tech University faculty, staff, and students over age 18 are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine as part of the ADH vaccination plan. 

ATU Health and Wellness Center is a vaccination provider and is currently holding vaccine clinics on campus.  Please contact the HWC at 479-968-0329 for more information or to schedule a vaccine appointment if you are an ATU employee or student. Please pay close attention to ATU announcements and emails to learn more about upcoming vaccine clinics on campus.  

ATU faculty and staff who would like to receive the vaccine off campus are encouraged to contact local pharmacies and inquire about the availability of appointments. You can see the list of local pharmacies who are participating in the vaccination program here

Please direct any questions about vaccine distribution to Heath Whorton, ATU campus emergency manager, at mwhorton1@atu.edu.
