(State College) – Vaccinations will resume Thursday at the Regional Vaccination Clinic at the Bryce Jordan Center in State College. The clinic was briefly paused over concerns over rare blood clots in a small number of women who received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, which was being administered at the BJC.

The Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency and Department of Health announced Wednesday that operations would resume using the two-dose Moderna vaccine.

“The pause on the administration of the Johnson & Johnson vaccines required us to quickly pivot our planning in order to continue moving forward with appointments that are currently scheduled,” said PEMA Director Randy Padfield.

The RVC will operate Thursdays through Mondays from noon to 8 p.m. on weekdays and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends.

Anyone eligible for a vaccine can make an appointment online or by calling 1-844-545-3450. The clinic is open to residents of all Pennsylvania counties, including students from out of state.
