In the interest of making the COVID-19 vaccine as conveniently available for those interested in receiving it, our local health-care facilities are equipped to go onsite as well as offer dedicated times for employers to offer vaccines at their locations in Erie County.
In manufacturing, employers can schedule around shift changes in spit-shift schedules if needed to accommodate production needs. There is not necessarily a standard minimum number of employees — although the larger the population, the more effective and efficient the onsite clinics operate. They have done sizes of 20 to 750 employees and all sizes in between. Some clients invite family members or even local community members to the clinics if it is appropriate.
Each has a mobile unit and/or a tent for the outdoor clinics.
See contact information below for each hospital to learn more about what is involved and for educational materials that help communicate the message of the importance of immunizations, what to expect after, myths associated with immunization, etc.
