“With proms, graduations, weddings, fairs, etc. getting the J&J vaccine now means that two weeks after the date of your shot you are considered fully vaccinated,” stated Paul Pettit, Public Health Director for GO Health. “It takes more planning to get the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines as they are two doses and it will take 2 weeks following the second dose to be fully vaccinated which would be 5-6 more weeks before you can participate in large events without the time and expense of testing."
The following clinic is scheduled in Cattaraugus Coutunty and open to those 18 and older who reside, work, or study in New York State:
- May 8 from 12:15 p.m. to 1:15 p.m. at Jamestown Community College Olean Campus.
