COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic Schedule

The Niagara County Department of Health will be offering FREE COVID-19 vaccine at several sites.

As of November 4, 2021 children ages 5-11 are eligible to receive Pfizer Vaccine. Appointments are strongly recommended and ALL children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

On December 16, the CDC recommended that mRNA COVID-19 vaccines (i.e., Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines) are preferred over the Janssen COVID-19 vaccine for the prevention of COVID-19 for all people age 18 years or older. This recommendation applies to both primary series and booster doses.

COVID-19 booster doses are now recommended for all individuals ages 12 years and older as follows:

  • Pfizer-BioNTech: All individuals 12 years of age and older at least five (5) months after completion of primary series
  • Moderna: All individuals 18 years of age and older at least five (5) months after completion of primary series
  • Janssen (J&J): All individuals 18 years of age and older at least two (2) months after completion of a one-dose Janssen primary series.

Children ages 5 – 11 years of age are NOT eligible for boosters at this time.

Booster doses for Pfizer, J&J and Moderna are available at each location. Pre-registration is strongly recommended.

Second Dose Pfizer Appointments

All individuals attending a Niagara County DOH clinic, will be auto-registered for the 2nd dose appointment at the same location and same time as the 1st dose unless otherwise directed. Anyone that received a 1st dose at a pharmacy or other clinic should use a registration link to register for an appointment at least 21 days after the 1st dose.

Vaccination of Minors Ages 5 – 17 Years

All individuals age 5 and older are eligible to receive a Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. However, minors ages 5 to 17 are NOT authorized to receive the Janssen or Moderna COVID-19 Vaccines.

In general, it is strongly encouraged that a parent or legal guardian accompany a minor age 5 to 17 years to provide in-person consent for vaccination at each dose.

If a minor is unaccompanied, the provider will attempt to contact the parent or guardian by phone with a witness listening at the time of the minor’s vaccination to provide consent to the provider. Providers may accept a written statement of consent from the parent or guardian, where the parent or guardian is not available by phone to provide consent to vaccinate an unaccompanied minor.

The minor should also bring ID/proof of date of birth (birth certificate, passport, learning permit/driver’s license, benefits care, etc.).

Recomendations for Boosters

There are now booster recommendations for all three available COVID-19 vaccines in the United States. Individuals 18 years and older may choose which vaccine they receive as a booster dose. Some people may have a preference for the vaccine type that they originally received, and others may prefer to get a different booster. CDC’s recommendations now allow for this type of mix and match dosing for booster shots

If you received Pfizer-BioNtech:

  • Individuals 12 years of age and older may get a Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine booster at least 5 months after completion of the primary (1st and 2nd doses) of the COVID-19 vaccination series.
  • Adults 18 years and older can get any of the COVID-19 vaccines authorized in the United States
  • If you are moderately to severely immune compromised, talk to your doctor about receiving a 3rd/Additional dose of Pfizer.
