The Orleans and Genesee County Health Departments wants to work with local businesses to host a pop-up vaccine clinic for employees.

Businesses with 50 or more employees are urged to fill out a 4-question survey (click here) to show their interest in hosting a clinic.

The Health Departments note that all vaccine recipients must complete and pass a screening questionnaire to qualify for a vaccine.

Individuals must be at least 18 years of age to receive Moderna vaccine and 16 years of age to receive Pfizer vaccine. All individuals must be able to commit to a second dose vaccine to receive the first dose – 4 weeks after first dose for Moderna and 3 weeks for Pfizer.

In the survey, the Health Departments ask how many employees would be expected to receive the vaccine at the clinic, and whether the business has a facility where at least 20 people can be socially distanced by at least 6 feet.
