NYS Department of Health releases study about vaccine effectiveness

The study collected statewide data over three months. Researchers found that vaccines increased your chance of staying out of the hospital by more than 90%.

“What that means is when we look at vaccinate persons compared to unvaccinated persons they have a 95% lower change of being hospitalized with COVID-19,” Rosenberg said.

The New York State Department of Health has released its first study on how effective the COVID-19 vaccine is against infection and hospitalization.

COMMUNITY COLLABORATIONS are powerful! GROCERIES TO SENIORS is a collaboration that include Buffalo Federation of Neighborhood Centers, The Journey Church of Buffalo, Urban Fruits and Veggies and very generous local restaurants that donate hot meals.

The pandemic created great needs. Pastor Art at The Journeys Church saw a need to make sure our seniors were not forgotten during the pandemic. He reached out to community partners including BFNC to create “Groceries to Seniors”. Every 4th Saturday fresh vegetables, can goods, cooking items and a hot meal are delivered by volunteers to seniors.

We are proud to now offer our new renovated space in the Westminster community House for storing goods for delivery. Thank you Daisy Ball, Director BFNC Hope Center for your service.

Seniors and Volunteers can sign up at https://journeychurchbuffalo.com/groceries-to-seniors/
