BJC Vaccination Clinic to Open Tuesday for Final Week of Operation

The state-run Regional Vaccination Clinic at the Bryce Jordan Center will be open every day from Tuesday through Monday for one final week of operations, according to a release on Monday night from the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency

Since opening on April 9, the clinic has been closed on Tuesdays and Wednesday but will be open daily as it prepares to wind down.

“This clinic provided both the community, and students and staff at Penn State with the opportunity to get a vaccine in a convenient location,” PEMA Director Randy Padfield said in a statement. “The clinic contributed significantly to our overall vaccination efforts in Pennsylvania.”

All vaccinations will be on a walk-in basis and no appointments will be accepted for the next week.

Hours for the clinic are:

  • Tuesday, June 8: noon to 8 p.m.
  • Wednesday, June 9: noon to 8 p.m.
  • Thursday, June 10: noon to 8 p.m.
  • Friday, June 11: noon to 8 p.m.
  • Saturday, June 12: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Sunday, June 13: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Monday, June 14: noon to 8 p.m

Those receiving a vaccination can choose between the two-dose Moderna or single-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine, both of which are authorized for individuals 18 and older. Those who select the Moderna vaccine this week will be given information on how they can contact a vaccine provider to receive the second shot.

Through Sunday, the clinic operated jointly by PEMA and the Department of Health has administered 10,046 doses of vaccine.

“Getting vaccinated adds the best protection against this virus making our communities a safer place to go back to the activities we have may missed over the past year,” Acting Secretary of Health Alison Beam said. “We will continue to work with the thousands of vaccine providers across the state to ensure vaccine is available to those who want it.”

All Pennsylvania residents age 12 and older are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. The Pfizer BioNTech vaccine is authorized for ages 12 and older.

Vaccine providers and availability in Centre County and elsewhere can be found at vaccines.gov.

As of Monday morning, 71,185 people in Centre County are fully vaccinated and 12,048 are partially covered. About 51% of the total Centre County population has received at least one dose.
