Erie County announces prom-themed teen vaccination clinics on Saturday
BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) – The Erie County Department of Health (ECDOH) announced “prom-themed adolescent vaccine” clinics for the COVID-19 vaccine on Saturday.
ECDOH says that each site will be decorated with a theme like a prom and have an assortment of freebies.
Items offered range from reusable water mugs and bottles to gift cards and electronics. High school students at each event will also receive a voucher for a free 18-inch balloon from POP! Party supplies and a coupon for graduation party supplies.
“Children and teens have missed out on traditional events like balls and dances over the past year,” said Health Commissioner Dr Gale Burstein. “While our COVID-19 adolescent vaccination clinics are no substitute for these experiences, our clinic staff go to extraordinary lengths to create a fun and welcoming atmosphere at these events.
There will be three clinics from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Saturday.
