COVID-19 Vaccine Walk-In Appointments Available At ECC As Early As Tonight
A couple weeks ago, it was incredibly difficult to find appointments to get the COVID-19 vaccine. But if you're still looking, there are plenty here in WNY.
Remember just a couple weeks ago when people were driving all over the state to get the vaccine for COVID-19? According to WIVB, there are plenty. There are even some walk-in appointments available as early as tonight at ECC North and South. Those appointments are available for anyone 18+ until Tuesday at 7 p.m. (as of 4/20).
Walk-in appointments aren't all that common. In many cases, you have to call ahead or sign up online to get an appointment. WIVB put together a very comprehensive list of links to particular counties here in Western New York where they are providing vaccines:
Erie County: Link, (716) 858-2929
Niagara County: Link, (716) 439-7430
Chautauqua County: Link, (716) 753-4000
Cattaraugus County: Link, (716) 701-3777
Allegany County: Link, (585) 268-9250
Orleans and Genesee counties: Link, (585) 344-2580
Wyoming County: Link, (585) 786-8890
For more detailed information about the specific place where they will be having the vaccine clinics or other places that aren't on the list above, please click here.
It's a good reminder that if you choose to get either of the two shot vaccines provided by either Moderna or Pfizer, you will have to return to the same place to get that second shot. So, very rarely is it a one time trip. This is why it is important to grab an appointment that is close to you (or even somewhat close to you).
Also remember, there is another asset called "Vaccine Hound" that will help you find an appointment near you. That website is operated by computer data and human volunteers at UB.
