The Armstrong vaccine clinics will now offer the FDA-approved Pfizer vaccine at the weekly vaccine clinics on Wednesdays. It requires two doses and is FDA approved for individuals 16 and over.

Armstrong students can make an appointment through their MyGS Portal to receive their COVID-19 vaccine at the Health Professions Academic Building on Wednesday., Sept. 29.

Both the Moderna and Johnson and Johnson vaccines, which are approved under Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for individuals 18 and over, are available at the clinic.

The Moderna vaccine requires two doses to be completely effective, but the Johnson & Johnson vaccine only requires one dose.
