3 more Vax to School pop-up sites announced for WNY

The three events are in Buffalo, Angola, and Sanborn this weekend.

BUFFALO, N.Y. — Gov. Kathy Hochul announced 25 more Vax to School pop-up sites across the state happening in the next week to help get more school-age children vaccinated.   

These clinics are part of the 120 sites promised to be established across the state over 12 weeks. Each event will be tailored to best serve the community by the partners, host sites, and outreach efforts.  

"We continue to do everything possible to vaccinate eligible school-aged New Yorkers," Hochul said. "Our #VaxtoSchool program—including new sites established weekly, mobile vaccinations, and education efforts in collaboration with partners on-the-ground—is bringing the vaccine to younger New Yorkers and their families. If you are a parent or guardian of a school-aged New Yorker, I urge you to get your child vaccinated so they can protect themselves, those around them, and participate in keeping their school community healthy and safe from COVID-19."
