Vaccine Information

Fox Run has partnered with Buffalo Pharmacies, Inc. as our partner pharmacy to provide the COVID-19 vaccine moving forward for all new and unvaccinated Fox Run Community Members and staff.  

Fox Run contracted with Walgreens Pharmacy to conduct a campus wide vaccination clinic in January of 2021.  Walgreens Pharmacy delivered and administered the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine to Skilled Nursing Community Members and staff on 1.15, 2.5 and 2.26.2021.  The three vaccination dates for the Independent Living, Assisted Living, and Memory Care were 1.26, 2.16, and 3.9.2021.  

The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory.  All employees are still required to be tested and wear all required PPE when at Fox Run, whether or not they were vaccinated.   All individuals who received the vaccine are given a vaccination card. 

Fox Run does not sponsor or endorse any of the following information but as a courtesy would like to share information regarding The Vaccinate WNY Hub.  It is a resource tool that posts available vaccination appointments locally.  University of New York at Buffalo, which is part of the WNY HUB, launched the WNY Vaccine Hound, to assist anyone in getting vaccinated in the WNY Community.
