Vaccine Clinic Held In Findley Lake
FINDLEY LAKE — Univera Healthcare and Kinney Drugs, in conjunction with the Chautauqua County Department of Health and Human Services, hosted a COVID-19 vaccine clinic recently at the Mina-Findley Lake Community Center in Findley Lake.
More than 90 people, about a third of the year-round residents of the 14736 ZIP Code, received their first dose of the Pfizer vaccine.
“We coordinated with Chautauqua County Commissioner of Social Services and Public Health, Christine Schuyler, to place our pop-up vaccine clinic where vaccination rates were low,” said Art Wingerter, Univera president. “That we were able to vaccine such a large percentage of the population of the Findley Lake area made the effort an overwhelming success.”
Individuals who received their first dose at the Findley Lake clinic will be notified by Kinney Drugs of the date of their second dose.
Univera Healthcare is the first area health insurer to host a vaccine clinic in Chautauqua County. The nonprofit health plan is headquartered in Buffalo and has a Chautauqua County office on West Third Street in Jamestown. Kinney Drugs operates a chain of 96 full-service drug stores located throughout New York and Vermont.
