(WIVB) – Erie County is ramping up the COVID-19 vaccine rollout.
Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz tweeted Monday that the county will receive about 21,000 doses next week.
More than 9,000 of those vaccines will go to pharmacies.
On Wednesday, the state’s vaccine eligibility will expand to government employees, non-profit workers and essential service workers.
Last week, the state announced that New Yorkers who are 60 years old or older can receive the vaccine.
