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.
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.
