ERIE COUNTY DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH COORDINATES “SHOTS AT THE SHOP” COVID-19 VACCINE CLINIC WITH BOUGIE NAIL BOUTIQUE IN BUFFALO
Outreach part of a nationwide program to address vaccine hesitancy
ERIE COUNTY, NY – The Erie County Department of Health (ECDOH) is coordinating a “Shots at the Shop” COVID-19 vaccine clinic at Bougie Nail Boutique on Saturday, November 6, 2021.
Shots at the Shop is a White House-backed effort from the University of Maryland’s Maryland Center for Health Equity, the Black Coalition Against COVID, the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) and the beauty and personal care brand SheaMoisture. Black-owned barbershops and hair salons were selected nationwide to promote informed decision-making as a means to increase COVID-19 vaccinations. Participants attend a four-hour online Rapid Response Training Program: From Vaccine Hesitancy to Vaccine Confidence; offer COVID-19 vaccine materials in their shops; and, hold on-site vaccine clinics with local health departments.
“This event follows our other, creatively styled, vaccine clinics from earlier this year, such as the “Shot and a Chaser” incentives, and prom-themed clinics for middle- and high-school students,” said Commissioner of Health Dr. Gale Burstein. “We want to thank Kathleen Dent of Bougie Nail Boutique for reaching out through NACCHO and the Shots at the Shop initiative. Our department is looking forward to planning similar vaccine clinics with local barber shops and hair salons that are part of this program.”
Where: Bougie Nail Boutique, 448 Ontario Street, Buffalo, 14207
When: Saturday, November 6, 2021, 12-4 p.m.
What: COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic with Pfizer and Moderna (first, second, third and booster doses) for ages 12 and older.
