The Community Health Center of Buffalo, Inc., in accordance with the NYS guidelines and in conjunction with orders from the CDC, placed our vaccination clinic on hold after receiving news regarding rare adverse side effects of the Johnson and Johnson (Jansen) vaccination.
“After further investigation into the side effects of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine, the CDC and FDA determined that C
erebral Venous Sinus Thrombosis (CVST) among patients that received the Johnson and Johnson vaccine is very rare, and the data shows that vaccine benefits far outweigh any potential risks,”said Dr. Kenyani Davis.
Effective Monday, April 26 the Community Health Center of Buffalo, Inc., re-opened its vaccination clinics in Buffalo and Niagara Falls. Vaccination hours at the Buffalo site located at 34 Benwood Avenue, are from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday; and at the Niagara Falls site located at 2715 Highland Avenue on Thursday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.. Appointments are available by calling (716) 986-9199, Option 9. Walk-ins are welcome at both sites!
