Vaccination pop-up coming to Lafayette High School on Saturday

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Gov. Kathy Hochul announced eight more pop-up vaccination sites at schools around New York as the state continues its push to increase vaccination rates among school-aged children, which it calls #VaxtoSchool.

Vaccines will be available for free at Lafayette High School (2885 Main St.) from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. Registration will be available on the Erie County vaccination page.

A local medical professional will be available at each site to answer any questions, the state said.

Children aged 12 to 17 can take the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, which is available under emergency use authorization for children ages 12 to 15 and is fully approved for those age 16 and older.

“In partnership with localities on the ground, our #VaxtoSchool sites are bringing the vaccine to school-aged New Yorkers and their families in convenient and accessible ways,” Hochul said. “The COVID-19 vaccine is safe and effective – and it remains our greatest protection against the virus. I urge eligible school-aged New Yorkers and their families to get vaccinated as soon as possible so we can keep our school communities healthy and safe.”

As of Oct. 5, 61.3 percent of those age 12-15 are vaccinated, the state said, as well as 70.9 percent of those age 16-25.
