Northern Michigan University has canceled vaccine clinics for students scheduled today and tomorrow in response to calls from two federal agencies, the FDA and CDC, for an immediate pause on the use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. NMU's Health Center was notified last week it would receive an allocation of J & J single-shot doses and scheduled clinics in the hope of fully vaccinating students before the end of the semester.
Northern Michigan University's Temaki and Tea and Smoothie King restaurant will offer only call-ahead and drive-thru service from April 12-23. Indoor seating will not be offered during that period to conform with Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's recommendation that indoor dining pause for two weeks to reduce COVID-19 community spread.
