ERIE COUNTY, N.Y. (WIVB)–Scheduling for COVID antibody test appointments is resuming for Erie County Department of Health clinics taking place in June, according to officials.

Appointments are available in half-hour increments from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.

For the next two weeks, those locations are Buffalo, North Buffalo, Orchard Park, Springville, and Williamsville.

The Department of Health will schedule appointments for residents 11-years-old and older through the COVID-19 information line at 716-858-2929.
