POP-UP COVID-19 VACCINATION AT THE NORTHWEST BUFFALO COMMUNITY CENTER for Residents of zip code 14207

MAYOR BROWN ANNOUNCES A POP-UP COVID-19 VACCINATION AT THE NORTHWEST BUFFALO COMMUNITY CENTER

Buffalo, NY – Mayor Byron W. Brown today announced a pop-up Covid-19 vaccination clinic will be held Friday, March 19, 2021 at the Northwest Buffalo Community Center. The one-day clinic is open exclusively to residents of Buffalo’s 14207 zip code.

“At the request of North District Common Council Member Joseph Golombek, and members of the community, I was able to work with Governor Cuomo’s staff and Rev. Mark Blue to bring a pop-up vaccination site to the 14207 zip code,” Mayor Brown said.

Mayor Brown and Council Member Golombek, whose district is located in the 14207 zip code, were concerned about low vaccination rates in the North District.

“I want to thank Mayor Brown, Assemblyman William Conrad and Erie County Legislator Lisa Chimera for going to bat for the people in my district to get this clinic,” Golombek said.

“Thank you, Mayor Brown for inviting the NAACP to work with you and your administration with State officials to ensure that members of our minority, elderly and immigrant communities within the City of Buffalo have equal access to this vaccine with the ability to create a healthier community,” said Rev. Mark Blue President Buffalo Chapter of the NAACP. “Not only am I on the Governor’s Taskforce for Vaccine Health Equity, I also serve as Chair of the Health Equity Taskforce for the WNY Region.”

Dr. Raul Vasquez, who has overseen three vaccination sites in Buffalo’s vulnerable neighborhoods, will manage the pop-up clinic, which will administer 500 doses of State-supplied vaccine.

Appointments for the Northwest Community Center one-day clinic can be made by calling the Center at (716)-876-8108, Extension 10.  The clinic will take place Friday, March 19th, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., by appointment only. The Community Center is located just off Military Avenue, at 155 Lawn Ave.
