“We are happy to be able to continue providing the pop-up clinics to our Genesee and Orleans County residents,” said Paul Pettit, public health director in the two counties. “As a reminder the Pfizer vaccine is for anyone 12 years old and older. Moderna and Pfizer are two doses and Johnson & Johnson (J&J) Janssen vaccine is a one and done vaccine. People are considered to be fully vaccinated after 2 weeks following their last dose of the 2-series vaccines and 2 weeks after the J&J vaccine.”
The Pfizer, J & J and Moderna clinics offer walk-in opportunities. However, Pettit encouraged people to register and choose the vaccine that best works for them to guarantee the dose availability and make the appointment quick and easy. Walk-ins are available on a first come, first serve basis.
