Appointments for the first-dose Moderna COVID-19 vaccines are now available by going to niagaracounty.com and clicking on the blue box that says “COVID-19 Vaccination Info.” The scheduling link is found under “Step 1.” The link will remain active until all appointments are filled. Niagara County residents who do not have internet access may register for an appointment by calling 211 or 1-888-696-9211.
“We will also be administering roughly 1,650 second doses of Moderna COVID-19 vaccine on Wednesday, so our clinic will be busy both days,” Niagara County Public Health Director Daniel J. Stapleton said. “We had planned on also scheduling appointments for about 500 first doses of Johnson & Johnson’s (J&J) Janssen vaccine, but we are postponing that for right now until we receive further guidance from the New York State Department of Health related to CDC’s directive to pause J & J.”
All Niagara County Department of Health PODs are scheduled on a weekly basis, as they are dependent on the quantity and type of vaccine received from New York state. Registration is required.
