BUFFALO, N.Y. — Buffalo residents living in certain zip codes who are considered in Phase 1A or Phase 1B will be able to register for coronavirus vaccine appointments at the Delavan Grider Community Center on Wednesday.

Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown spoke about the significance of this site on his weekly radio show Sunday.

"When we look at the numbers, there is still an inequity in the number of Blacks and other people of color being vaccinated," he said. "So this was placed on the East Side of Buffalo to try to address that. Some of the pop-ups in the community are also addressing that."
