Currently, students and faculty in health-related disciplines who have contact with patients are getting vaccinated. These vaccinations are provided by and have taken place at Erie County Department of Health sites and local hospitals including Buffalo General Medical Center, the VA Western New York Health Care System, Millard Fillmore Suburban and Erie County Medical Center.
In addition, faculty engaged in in-person instruction have now been approved for the vaccine.
The NYS Department of Health is developing and communicating plans to vaccinate other essential workers and individuals whose health is considered to be most at risk. For updates, please see information provided by the NYS Department of Health.
