The Genesee and Orleans County Health Departments will continue to take Covid vaccination clinics on the road this week, with opportunities to get the vaccine at the Orleans County YMCA and Darien Lake.

All clinics are now available for walk-in and registration, including for the Pfizer vaccine, which is approved to vaccinate anyone 12 years old and older.

“The pop-up clinics are a great way for our residents to conveniently get vaccinated,” said Paul Pettit, public health director for the two counties. “The clinics have been running very smoothly and residents seem happy that they don’t have to travel very far to get their vaccination.”

Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson and Moderna vaccine clinics offer walk-in opportunities. However, the GO Health Departments encourage people to register and choose one of the three the vaccine. That way the Department can guarantee the dose, better space out the appointments and make the check-in process easier.

The schedule for clinics this week includes:

Tuesday at Six Flags Darien Lake from 1 to 5 p.m., Darien Lake Human Resources, 1501 Sumner Road, Corfu. Vaccine available includes Johnson & Johnson, walk-ins and appointments (click here for appointment).
