Harrisburg, PA – The Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency (PEMA) and Department of Health (DOH) today announced that the Regional Vaccination Clinic (RVC) at the Bryce Jordan Center on Penn State’s University Park campus in Centre County will resume operations as scheduled on Thursday, April 29, offering both the two-dose Moderna vaccine and the single-dose Johnson & Johnson (J&J) vaccine.
“Our goal is to make it as convenient as possible for anyone who wants to get vaccinated by offering both Moderna and J&J and not requiring an appointment,” said PEMA Director Randy Padfield. “I would encourage anyone in Centre County and the surrounding area to take advantage of this opportunity to make an appointment, or walk in to get their vaccine.”
“Both the Johnson & Johnson and Moderna vaccines being offered at the Bryce Jordan Center are safe and effective against the COVID-19 virus,” Acting Secretary of Health Alison Beam said. “The safety procedures built into the vaccination process are working and should instill confidence in these vaccines. Getting vaccinated is the best way forward to protect you, your loved ones and neighbors from the virus and get back to your life and the things you may have missed over this past year.”
Starting April 29, those who go to the RVC will be able to choose between either the two-dose Moderna vaccine and the single-dose J&J vaccine. Anyone who wants a COVID-19 vaccine can make an appointment online or by calling 1-844-545-3450. While appointments are encouraged, walk-ins are also welcome. The clinic is open to everyone, regardless of county of residence.
Dates and hours of operation at the RVC are as follows:
- Thursday, April 29: 12:00 p.m. to 8 p.m.
- Friday, April 30: 12:00 p.m. to 8 p.m.
- Saturday, May 1: 9:00 a.m. to 5 p.m.
- Sunday, May 2: 9:00 a.m. to 5 p.m.
- Monday, May 3: 12:00 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The Pennsylvania National Guard (PANG) and AMI Expeditionary Healthcare, LLC, a health organization contracted by PEMA for planning and staffing assistance at commonwealth-established vaccine sites, continue to direct operations and administer doses at the site.
