Submitted by gallagha on Mon, 09/13/2021 - 12:50


MAYVILLE, N.Y.: – The Chautauqua County Health Department announces COVID-19 vaccination clinics that will be held through October 2021. Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson vaccine will be available at all clinics listed below, as long as supplies last. Vaccines will be provided at no cost to participants. Participants must bring proper identification to the clinic and wear a mask.

The Chautauqua County Health Department kindly requests that people attending drive-thru clinics do NOT bring pets or other animals in the vehicle with them to drive-thru clinics. This poses a safety risk to staff, and makes it difficult to vaccinate the participant safely.

Clinics:

  • Location: Chautauqua Lake Central School Bus Garage (100 N Erie St. Mayville, NY)
    Date/Time: Tuesdays in September and October (September 14, 21, 28 and October 5, 12, 19, 26), 4:30 - 6:30 p.m.

Clinic Type: Drive-thru
Registration Format: No appointment needed, but pre-registration is available.

 

  • Location: SUNY Fredonia Steele Hall (280 Central Ave. Fredonia, NY)
    Date/Time: Wednesday, September 15, 12:30 - 4:30 p.m.
    Clinic Type: Indoors
    Registration Format: No appointment needed, but pre-registration is available.

 

Additional clinics will be added to the Chautauqua County Health Department website as they are planned. Please monitor the webpage for the most up-to-date information and to pre-register for clinic events: https://chqgov.com/public-health/covid-19-vaccination-clinics.

First, second, and third doses will be provided to any eligible persons at the time of the clinic. Pfizer is available to anyone ages 12 and up; Moderna is available to anyone ages 18 and up; Johnson & Johnson is available to anyone 18 and up.

 

At this time, third dose boosters may be given to certain immunocompromised individuals. Currently, CDC is recommending that moderately to severely immunocompromised people receive an additional dose. This includes people who have:

  • Been receiving active cancer treatment for tumors or cancers of the blood;
  • Received an organ transplant and are taking medicine to suppress the immune system;
  • Received a stem cell transplant within the last 2 years or are taking medicine to suppress the immune system;
  • Moderate or severe primary immunodeficiency (such as DiGeorge syndrome, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome);
  • Advanced or untreated HIV infection; or
  • Active treatment with high-dose corticosteroids or other drugs that may suppress your immune response.

People should talk to their healthcare provider about their medical condition, and whether getting an additional dose is appropriate for them.

It is expected that third doses of mRNA vaccines will be made more widely available in the coming weeks. The Chautauqua County Health Department is currently planning for this expected change. Clinics will be added to their website as they are planned.

Vaccine is also available at many pharmacies throughout the County, as well as several medical providers.
