BUFFALO, N.Y – Erie County Medical Center Corporation today began providing COVID-19 vaccinations to emergency medical services providers as part of the NYS DOH Phase 1A vaccination program. AMR paramedic Tony Costello was the first EMS provider vaccinated at ECMC. EMS Medical Director Dr. Brian Clemency said, “EMS has been on the frontline of the COVID-19 pandemic since the very start.
