The owners of the Buffalo Sabres along with officials from Erie County announced today that they will use the KeyBank Center in Downtown Buffalo as a mass COVID-19 vaccinate site.

According to WKBW, the Lexus Club inside the arena will be used to vaccinate people.

The Lexus Club at the KeyBank Center will be able to vaccinate 1,000 people each day, according to Erie County.

KeyBank Center will now become the third mass vaccinate site in Erie County. Currently, the county uses ECC North and ECC South as vaccination sites.
