Niagara County Expecting Largest Vaccine Shipment to Date

Size of Clinic Necessitates Staying at Kenan Arena 

Niagara County Public Health Director Daniel J. Stapleton today announced that Niagara County is expecting to receive 6,500 first doses of COVID-19 vaccination next week, by far the most the county has ever received for a single week.  

The county is expecting 5,000 Johnson & Johnson vaccines and 1,500 Moderna that must be dispensed in that week.  These doses would nearly double the TOTAL amount of vaccine doses Niagara County has received to date. 

Stapleton said that, with such a large volume of vaccines coming, the health department will not be moving its Point of Dispensing (POD) vaccination clinic from the Kenan Arena in Lockport to Gratwick Fire Hose Company #6 in North Tonawanda next week as had been planned.
