Submitted by heitzend on Wed, 04/21/2021 - 16:43

MAYVILLE, NY – The Chautauqua County Health Department reports that the COVID-19 first-dose vaccination rate in the County rose to 42.8% of eligible residents over the last week, and 35.3% of total residents. Data current through April 17 indicate that 30.7% of eligible residents and 24.8% of all county residents are fully vaccinated. Each week shows progress toward meeting the goal of 75% of residents fully vaccinated.

While vaccination numbers continue to climb, the Health Department reminds residents that it is very important to continue to practice COVID-19 safety measures. Vaccinations and safety measures – wearing masks, social distancing, washing hands, and avoiding gatherings- are our strongest tools to end the COVID-19 pandemic.

Efforts to ensure health equity are underway, and progress has been made in increasing the first dose vaccination rate among various minority groups. Estimated vaccination rates by race and ethnicity are as follows.

Vaccine-Finding Resources

The Health Department’s website contains information on vaccination clinics, including pharmacies, in the County. Please visit Public Health’s COVID-19 Vaccine page at https://chqgov.com.  Those without internet can also call 1-866-604-6789 for assistance. 

 

Two online resources are also available to residents to assist in finding vaccine providers with either active registration links, and/or vaccine supply: https://www.vaccinehound.org and https://vaccinefinder.org.  The Vaccine Hound website is run by a group of volunteers that checks websites for Western New York vaccine providers and lists them on the site only when clinic links have availability. The Vaccine Finder tool provides a map and listing of all vaccine providers in the community, including a phone number and website for each provider, and whether or not there is vaccine in stock.
