The Niagara County Department of Health has expanded all second-dose clinics in the month of June to include free single-dose Johnson & Johnson/Janssen COVID-19 vaccine for individuals 18 years of age and older. There will be clinics at seven different sites.

“The Johnson & Johnson vaccine requires only one dose. Adults can get fully vaccinated at one visit,” Public Health Director Daniel J. Stapleton said.

Single-dose Johnson & Johnson/Janssen COVID-19 vaccine (18 years of age and older) will be offered from 9 a.m. until 2:40 p.m. at each of the following clinics:

  • June 3, Gratwick Fire Hose No. 6 (North Tonawanda)
  • June 8, Royalton-Hartland High School

  • June 15, Barker Jr./Sr. High School gym
