Latest Update

From Chief of Staff Adelia Thompson emailed to faculty and staff.

Good Morning:

Early today, the Food and Drug Administration and the CDC urged a pause in the use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

The clinic planned for our campus today was for Johnson & Johnson shots, exclusively.

Riverside Health System is replacing the J & J vaccines with Moderna vaccines. Everyone scheduled to receive the vaccine today will be able to keep those appointments. Everyone receiving the vaccine will also be given clear instructions about where to go to receive the second dose.

A number of Christopher Newport students are scheduled for the clinic today. Since they will be eligible for their second dose after summer break begins. and most will not be on campus, we will work with those students to make it easy for them to receive that second dose at a location in their hometowns.

Tomorrow's clinic of second-dose Moderna vaccines will proceed as scheduled.

Thank you - if you have questions please direct them to Chief Communications Officer Jim Hanchett, and as always he will work to find the right person to help you.
