BINGHAMTON, NY – Following the state’s decision to put the Johnson and Johnson vaccine on hold, BU will also no longer be offering the shot for the time being.

They are awaiting further guidance.

Instead, the school will be offering free transportation for students to the Johnson City state-run site, where they can receive Pfizer.

The semester ends in mid-May, so there should be time for students to receive both shots before leaving for summer break.
