The Niagara County Department of Health will collaborate with various community partners to offer free COVID-19 vaccinations at events this summer.
“As our large-scale and school-based vaccination clinics have ended, we are expanding our schedule to include evenings and weekends,” Public Health Director Daniel Stapleton said. “We are shifting our focus to family-friendly events that Niagara County residents may already be attending.”
Director of Public Health Planning and Emergency Preparedness Tracy Fricano Chalmers said, “NCDOH will kick-off this initiative with events at Niagara Power’s Sal Maglie Stadium and Rustic Buffalo Artisan Market. We invite community partners and event planners to contact us at 716-439-7431 to discuss additional collaborative opportunities for COVID-19 vaccination.”
NCDOH will offer the two-dose Moderna (individuals 18 years of age and older), the two-dose Pfizer (individuals 12 years of age and older) and the single-dose Johnson & Johnson (individuals 18 years of age and older) vaccines. All individuals receiving Moderna or Pfizer vaccine will be scheduled for their second-dose clinics at the time of their first dose, likely at the same location.
“Appointments are recommended; however, walk-in participants will be welcomed,” Stapleton said. “We want to make vaccination as easy as possible for Niagara County residents.”
