Niagara County’s Public Health Director, Daniel Stapleton, gave an announcement today, updating residents on the vaccination process currently underway in the region.
Stapleon’s Vaccination Update Statement:
“The Niagara County Health Department has exhausted this week’s supply of the COVID-19 vaccine and as such, our Point of Dispending (POD) site at the Kenan Center in Lockport is closed for this week. To date, the county Health Department has completed over 4,800 first dose vaccinations and 950 second dose vaccinations.
“I remind people that we do not take appointments until we have the vaccinations in hand to avoid having to potentially cancel. This week, once we received a supply of about 400 doses, we opened up those appointment and they were filled within 15 minutes. We do not yet know how much vaccine we will receive for next week and with that, do not know when appointment scheduling will resume.
“Last, these are just numbers for the Niagara County Health Department’s POD. There are PODS being run by other entities. I urge residents to continue checking the state website at ny.gov for information on the state POD at the UB South Campus and to contact their local pharmacies as well.”
