Erie County Ready to Make Buffalo Convention Center Massive Vaccination Site
Could the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center be a mass COVID-19 vaccination site?
Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz wants to be ready.
Poloncarz announced today he wants Erie County to collaborate with the state and the National Guard to "open a mass vaccination site at the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center," according to WIVB.
The County Executive hopes the site could be ready within a month, and is also employing help in the tech sector for future vaccinations.
WIVB reports the county is talking with Microsoft to bring an electronic appointment system to WNY.
"He said he’s been unhappy with the appointment system the state has."
The County Executive says the Convention Center site could provide 3,000 doses a day, and run 24/7.
