Governor Cuomo announces 2 pop-up vaccine clinics in Buffalo

One clinic will be hosted at Native American Community Services, the other at the Calvary Baptist Church in the city of Buffalo.

BUFFALO, N.Y. — Governor Cuomo announced Friday that there will be two COVID-19 pop-up vaccine clinics in the city of Buffalo.

The two sites of the clinics are:

Native American Community Services

1005 Grant St, Buffalo, NY - Saturday, April 10, 9 a.m. - 3 p.m.

Calvary Baptist Church

1184 Genesee St, Buffalo, NY - Wednesday, April 14, 9 a.m. - 2 p.m.

"New York State is working tirelessly to vaccinate all eligible New Yorkers for COVID-19, but hesitancy remains a serious issue, especially in communities of color, as well as ones which have been historically underserved. That's why we've established pop-up vaccination sites to bring the vaccine directly to those communities in every region of the state," Governor Cuomo said. "These 16 pop-up sites in public housing developments, houses of worship, and community centers will administer thousands of shots in arms over the next week and get us closer to a post-COVID future.

Governor Cuomo also announced that the state would be receiving significantly fewer Johnson and Johnson doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, but that decrease in supply hasn't resulted in canceled appointments yet.

Appointments can be made on the state vaccine appointment website.
