Niagara County receiving 6,500 doses of COVID vaccines next week
Niagara County will be receiving 6,500 first doses of COVID-19 vaccines next week. That is the highest allocation of vaccinations to date in the county.
Public Health Director Daniel Stapleton said 5,000 doses of the newly approved Johnson & Johnson vaccine are expected to be delivered, along with 1,500 Moderna doses.
With the large allocation expected, the county will not transfer its Point of Dispensing clinic from the Kenan Center in Lockport to Gratwick Fire Hose Company Number 6 in North Tonawanda next week, as originally announced.
New vaccine appointments will not be accepted until after the county receives the vaccines.
