Stony Brook University is offering students the opportunity to get the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine at the Student Union.
Students can receive the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, which only needs a single dose to be effective, by completing the appointment form included in an email sent out on April 6 and bringing the New York State Consent and Attestation forms and a student ID to their vaccine appointment.
