State says eligibility for vaccinations at GCC following protocol
We asked the State Health Department for a statement on why the GCC vaccination clinic was not open to just Genesee County residents and here is the response:
- As with other non-FEMA, state-run mass vaccination sites, these are open to all eligible New Yorkers.
- As the press release said, these are “short-term mass vaccination sites” – as more vaccine doses become available, we will review how these sites functioned to determine future allocations at these sites or at other short-term sites we may establish across the state.
- Hawley says 'statewide free-for-all' to get COVID-19 vaccines is leaving rural areas behind
- Nearly half of the 3,500 COVID-19 vaccine doses at first GCC clinic booked by Erie County residents
