NYITCOM Offering Single-Dose COVID-19 Vaccines at On-Campus Medical Clinic

JONESBORO, AR – New York Institute of Technology College of Osteopathic Medicine at Arkansas State University is now offering the single-dose Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine at its on-campus medical clinic, the college announced Thursday. Those interested in receiving a vaccine must schedule an appointment by calling 870-972-2054.

“As a physician, I’m confidently encouraging everyone to get vaccinated as soon as possible,” said Dr. Brookshield Laurent, NYITCOM chair of clinical medicine and executive director of the Delta Population Health Institute. “The vaccines are safe and highly efficient. Vaccination is key to ending this pandemic, and we’re thrilled to offer this service at our clinic to help people protect themselves and their families.”

The NYITCOM at A-State Medical Clinic is located at 333B Red Wolf Boulevard in Jonesboro, adjacent to the St. Bernards Urgent Care facility and just south of Centennial Bank Stadium on the Arkansas State University campus. The NYITCOM at A-State Medical Clinic is housed in the space previously occupied by the A-State Student Health Center.

In 2019, NYITCOM took over operations of the A-State Student Health Center. NYITCOM’s faculty physicians now see patients at the NYITCOM at A-State Medical Clinic in addition to their roles as clinical medicine professors at the medical school. The NYITCOM at A-State Medical Clinic serves A-State students, faculty and staff as well as the general public and employs physicians who are board-certified in pediatrics, infectious disease, OB/GYN, family medicine and osteopathic manipulative medicine.
