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 three 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.

COVID-19 Vaccination Sites

NCDOH POD Registration

Step 1: Eligible individuals 18 years of age and older may schedule an appointment.



Step 2: Complete the New York State COVID-19 Vaccine Form. This form cannot be used to schedule an appointment. Complete this form only once you have a scheduled appointment.
The form may be found here: https://forms.ny.gov/s3/vaccine.
This form can be completed online and you will receive a submission ID upon completion. Please print out the page (or save a screenshot on your phone) and bring it with you to the POD. You will also need to bring proof of eligibility such as an employee ID card, letter from an employer or affiliated organization, or a pay stub, depending on the specific priority status.

NOTE: Vaccines are available at pharmacies, hospitals and through local health departments – please contact your provider of choice to schedule your vaccine appointment.
