HENRIETTA, N.Y. (WHEC)—  The Dome Arena in Henrietta will be set up as a site for COVID-19 vaccinations.

Melissa DeRosa - the Secretary to Governor Cuomo, made that announcement in a Tweet Monday morning.

It is a "walk-in" clinic,  but you will still have to make an appointment to get your shot. DeRosa clarified that "walk-in" does not mean it is a "drive-thru" clinic.

Phase 1B of vaccinations began in New York Monday, as the state also launched a new website and a call line for people to check if they qualify for the vaccine. 

While a specific date and time have not been announced, DeRosa said it will open "next week."

Health leaders at Rochester Regional Health say they plan to start reaching out to patients Monday, with the first shots to happen Tuesday.
