COVID-19 Vaccination

The Niagara County Department of Health (NCDOH) has long been preparing for emergencies that impact the public’s health. With emergency preparedness planning, training and exercising every year, Niagara County is well positioned for a quick and vital vaccination campaign. We have identified key Point of Dispensing (POD) sites to conduct mass vaccination operations. PODs are sites where eligible persons are invited to receive their COVID-19 vaccine in a quick, efficient and accurate manner. These sites are staffed by county employees as well as volunteers. Vaccine is available for priority groups identified by New York State (NYS). Vaccine will be provided to individuals based on the priorities and distributions as directed by NYS.

Pfizer vaccine is currently approved for individuals 12 years of age and older. Minor consent at Niagara County vaccination clinics is required as follows:

For minors 16 or 17 years of age, a parent or legal guardian must provide consent for vaccination. Such consent should be provided either in person or by phone, at the time of the vaccine appointment.

For minors who are 12 to 15 years of age, additionally, an adult caregiver should accompany the minor. If the adult caregiver is not the parent/guardian, the adult caregiver should be designated by the parent/guardian using the form here: https://coronavirus.health.ny.gov/system/files/documents/2021/04/vaccine-consent-form-4.29.21-1919.pdf and the parent/guardian must provide consent. Niagara County Department of Health may also call the parent/guardian to also review the screening questions
