ERIE COUNTY PLANS PROM-THEMED “TEEN VACCINE” CLINICS ON MAY 1

Free giveaways, graduation party supply coupons offered to high school students who get vaccinated at SUNY ECC South, SUNY ECC North and McKinley High School

ERIE COUNTY, NY – When Erie County Department of Health (ECDOH) vaccine clinic managers scheduled teen COVID-19 vaccine clinics for Saturday, May 1, creative sparks started to fly. Each clinic site will be decorated with a theme, much like a prom would have. ECDOH clinic staff and volunteers have assembled an assortment of giveaways for high school students attending each of three COVID-19 vaccine clinics.

Items at each site will vary, and range from mugs and reusable water bottles to gift cards and electronic devices. Also, high school students at each event will receive a voucher for one free 18” balloon from POP! Party Supply and a coupon to use towards graduation party supplies. POP! Party Supply has locations in Lockport and Orchard Park. [http://www.poppartysupply.com]

“Kids and teenagers have missed out on traditional events like proms and dances this past year,” said Commissioner of Health Dr. Gale Burstein. “While our teen COVID-19 vaccine clinics are in no way a replacement for those experiences, our clinic staff are making some extraordinary efforts to design a fun and welcoming atmosphere at these events.”

“High school students, their parents and family members can feel comfortable coming to our vaccine sites,” Dr. Burstein continued. “Large-scale COVID-19 vaccination reduces the risk that this disease will spread as high school students have graduations, proms, travel, sports and other activities.”

Appointments are strongly suggested; call (716) 858-2929 or visit bit.ly/erievax.
