JAMESTOWN – Chautauqua County’s Office for the Aging is partnering with a local pharmacy to help senior housing residents in Jamestown access the COVID-19 vaccine.

County officials say with the help of Rite Aid staff the agency is holding targeted on-site clinics to boost availability to those 65 and over.

During a vaccination clinic last month, nearly 200 people living in downtown Jamestown, mostly residents of Covenant Manor, the Hotel Jamestown and High Rise buildings, were vaccinated.

Rite Aid will return to Covenant Manor on Friday to provide residents vaccinated at the first clinic with their second dose.

  1. According to the government the Covid19 vaccine…

    • does not provide immunity
    • does not eliminate the virus
    • does not guarantee you won’t get it
    • does not stop you from passing it on to others
    • does not eliminate the need for travel bans
    • does not eliminate the need for business closures
    • does not eliminate the need for lockdowns
    • does not eliminate the need for social distancing
    • does not eliminate the need for masks

    And if you experience a severe adverse reaction, long term effects (still unknown) or die from the vaccine there will be no compensation from the vaccine manufacturer or the government as they have 100% zero liability.
