 14 PERCENT OF ERIE COUNTY RESIDENTS HAVE RECEIVED AT LEAST ONE DOSE OF COVID-19 VACCINE 

Delivery delays due to weather slowed administration of first vaccine doses

9 percent of all Erie County residents have received both doses of the vaccine

ERIE COUNTY, NY – The Erie County Department of Health (ECDOH) is providing an update on the number of COVID-19 vaccinations administered to Erie County residents based on information provided by the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH). 14.3% of Erie County residents have received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine, while 9.2% percent have received the two-dose series. Some vaccine deliveries to distribution points, including ECDOH PODs, were delayed last week due to severe weather in other parts of the county. That accounts for the relatively small increase in new first vaccine doses administered this week.

The NYSDOH Vaccine Tracker data through February 25 reports that the Western New York region administered 92% of received vaccine doses through county, state, nursing home, hospital, pharmacy, and community sites. Through February 25, ECDOH administered 23,507 first doses and 18,507 second doses at county-run PODs (points of distribution).
