LANCASTER, Pa. (WHTM) — Limited appointments for the single-dose “Janssen” COVID-19 vaccine will begin Thursday, May 27, at the Lancaster County Community Vaccination Center.
The Johnson & Johnson manufactured vaccination will be offered during three special clinics at the center. The center is located at the former Bon-Ton department store in Park City Center, Lancaster.
“We recognize that vaccination is not a one-size-fits-all solution. While we continue to primarily offer the two-dose Pfizer vaccine at the center, we think it’s important to provide the one-dose Janssen vaccine as an option for those who prefer it” Dr. Michael Ripchinski, site director of the vaccination center, a chief clinical officer with Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health, and lead healthcare partner for the Vaccinate Lancaster Coalition said.
The clinics will be held on Thursday, May 27 from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.; Friday, June 4 from 2:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.; and Saturday, June 5 from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
According to the press release, roughly 800 Janssen vaccine doses with be administered across the three days.
