OLEAN – A mass COVID-19 vaccination site will open in Cattaraugus County this week.

According to Congressman Tom Reed, the facility will be held at SUNY JCC’s Olean campus.







He says the facility will be operational and accepting appointments for the end of the week.

“We care about making sure all New Yorkers – including those in underserved communities chronically overlooked by Albany –  have fair access to life-saving COVID-19 vaccines,” said Reed in a statement. “We are glad to see the state reversed course and we will continue to fight to ensure the public health needs of Western New York are addressed and the region receives the additional support it deserves.”







Reed previously called on New York State to stop advocating against the interests of Western New York after an NBC report revealed the state denied Chautauqua County the opportunity to receive a mass vaccination site despite federal data.

He says new vaccination site will serve residents of Cattaraugus, Allegany, and Chautauqua counties.













Appointments are expected to be available online soon through the New York State Health Department’s website.
