SANBORN, N.Y. (WIVB) — A couple of #VaxToSchool COVID-19 vaccine clinics will be happening in Niagara County before the month is over.
Public Health Director Daniel Stapleton urges anyone 12 and older to get protected.
“Kids can catch COVID-19 and spread it to others,” he said. “The CDC recommends that individuals get vaccinated even if they have already had COVID-19, because they can be infected more than once.”
The upcoming clinics will take place at the Orleans-Niagara BOCES Niagara Career & Technical Educational Center (3181 Saunders Settlement Rd., Sanborn). Both Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson doses will be offered.
