(By Tom Rivers, Editor Posted 26 April 2021 at 5:17 pm)

There are opportunities this week for Orleans County residents to get the Covid-19 vaccine at a mass clinic.

The Genesee and Orleans County Health Departments have first dose Moderna vaccination clinics with appointments available targeting those who are 18 and older and open for any New York State individuals, who reside, work or study in the state.

There will be a clinic on Tuesday from 9 a.m. to noon at the Ridgeway Fire Hall on Route 104. As of 5:10 p.m., there are currently 116 appointment spots available. Click here to register.

There will be a clinic Wednesday from 9 a.m. to noon at GCC in Batavia at the college’s athletic center. There are currently 169 spots available. Click here to register.

Walk-ins will be accepted at both clinics from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

“We want to see all of these clinics filled up with those who can also commit to returning for the second dose of the Moderna vaccine 28 days later,” said Paul Pettit, public health director in the two counties.

Vaccine registration help line: Both counties are offering vaccination clinic registration via phone – these numbers are for Covid vaccination registration only.

In Orleans, call (585) 589-3170. In Genesee, call (585) 815-7168. For both numbers ask for the vaccine registration help line. The vaccine registration help line is not associated with either Public Health Department. The individuals who answer the phone can only assist with registering for a Covid-19 clinic.
