All New Yorkers age 16 and older are now eligible for the vaccine. The Village Pediatrics and Rheumatology staff fully endorse getting the COVID-19 vaccination and strongly recommend that those who are eligible receive it.
To assist you in finding an appointment, here are some handy links:
New York State’s COVID-19 vaccine page: https://covid19vaccine.health.ny.gov/
Western New York Vaccine Hound: https://www.vaccinehound.org
Vaccine Finder: https://vaccinefinder.org/
While the vaccination process is underway, New Yorkers should continue to wear a mask, social distance, avoid large gatherings and follow all other health guidelines.
In addition, once a patient becomes fully vaccinated they still need to follow the state and county regulations. The information for Erie County can be found here and the information for Cattaraugus County can be found here.
Village Pediatrics is in the process of becoming a NYS certified COVID-19 vaccination site. Once approved and we receive our first allotment, we’ll begin accepting vaccine appointments for patients 16 years of age and older and their parents and families.
In the meantime, be sure to sign up for your vaccine now, using one of the links above!
