The Erie County Department of Health (ECDOH) has launched an online system for scheduling COVID-19 vaccine appointments at sites run by Erie County.

This online system can be accessed at www.erie.gov/covid19/vaccine. Individuals ages 16 and older can register their information in this system, which includes a series of screening questions, and select a location and date for their appointment. The system will send a confirmation email that will include appointment information and instructions on how to cancel or reschedule if needed.

Individuals may also call the Erie County COVID-19 Information Line at (716) 858-2929 to schedule a vaccine appointment at ECDOH sites.

Appointments at the KeyBank Center site are currently available through this new online system. Other sites can be scheduled through the Information Line. By next week, all ECDOH sites may be scheduled through the online system or the Information Line.

ECDOH is also sharing scheduled Pop-up PODs (points of distribution), and strongly encouraging individuals who live and work near those sites to schedule an appointment.

Pop-up POD Schedule:

Saturday, April 17: Southside Elementary, 430 Southside Pkwy, Buffalo, NY 14210 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. (Moderna, 18 and older)

Thursday, April 22: Durham Memorial Outreach Center, 200 E. Eagle St., Buffalo, NY 14204 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. (Moderna, 18 and older)
