April 13 - Johnson & Johnson Vaccine, Care Alliance Appointments Update
Today the FDA, CDC, Governor DeWine and Ohio Department of Health recommended a pause in the use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine following extremely rare blood-clotting events in six people in the United State after receiving the vaccine. Request for codes for Weeks 7 and 8 at the Wolstein Center are currently paused.
In the meantime, vaccination opportunities are available through Care Alliance Health Center and at the Lee Road Baptist Church pop-up clinic:

Though daily COVID-19 case numbers remain high, extensive safety protocols are in place at all College locations. Additionally, 230 bipolar ionization filters were recently installed across the College, covering classrooms, offices and general gathering areas. These systems remove 99.4% of all COVID-related viruses from the air.
The College will continue to monitor the number of COVID-19 exposures and cases, adjusting these plans if necessary.
We need everyone’s help to keep our community safe by continuing to follow safety protocols:
- Perform a daily health assessment before coming to any campus or facility, and review and electronically sign the COVID-19 Statement of Personal Responsibility once per semester
- Wear a mask properly
- Stay 6 feet apart
- Wash your hands frequently, for 20 seconds
- Celebrate small
- Don’t eat or drink with anyone outside your household
- Limit travel
- If you’ve been exposed to the virus, you must isolate at home for 14 days. Do not come to the College. Notify Risk Management for specific instructions.
Coronavirus (COVID-19) Response and Preparedness
Tri-C’s Office of Compliance and Risk Management is monitoring the development of all potential and confirmed cases of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in the United States. Senior leadership at the College is meeting regularly to guide Tri-C’s processes, plans and protocols in regard to the situation.
On March 9, 2020, public health officials confirmed three cases of COVID-19 in Cuyahoga County. In response, Gov. Mike DeWine declared a State of Emergency in Ohio, an action that allows state departments and agencies to better coordinate their responses to protect citizens.
Tri-C is taking precautions to ensure the safety and health of the Collegewide community. In addition to issuing health bulletins on COVID-19 symptoms and prevention, the College has suspended all international and domestic travel for staff and students until further notice.
