BROCKPORT, N.Y. (WHEC)  SUNY Brockport is taking another shot at vaccinating students.

The college held a vaccine clinic Tuesday. It was supposed to happen last week but was pushed back over concerns about the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

The clinic was rescheduled to this Tuesday and Thursday, but is not offering the Johnson & Johnson shot.

Students will get the two-dose Pfizer vaccine instead.

The clinic started at nine o'clock this morning, with vaccinations happening right at Brockport's ice arena.

"We had a good plan to vaccinate students with Johnson and Johnson." President Heidi MacPherson said. "It seemed to be a great way to go because it's one shot and we could make sure we did it before graduation and commencement when we had to pivot very quickly the relationships that we built allowed that to happen."

SUNY Brockport's president says Wegmans stepped in to help.

More than 200 students were expected to get their shot on Tuesday.

Another clinic is set for Thursday.
