There are a lot of people who are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine that still haven't gotten it simply because they don't know how to.  But the library is available to help.

The Buffalo and Erie County Public Library has announced that if you're struggling to get an appointment for your COVID vaccine because you don't know how to navigate the websites you need to go to, they are here to help.

According to WIVB, the staff at the library can now assist you with signing up for your appointments.  The list of things they can help with doesn't stop with the vaccination appointments either.  They can also help with things like signing up for unemployment, finding food banks, and more.

“Being able to help people, not only with the vaccine but the number of problems and issues that have arisen due to the pandemic, we’ve been here and able to help people. Whether it’s signing up for unemployment, finding foodbanks, vaccination sites, we’re here for everyone in the county.” - Andrew Maines, Librarian
