COVID-19 Vaccine Information


The Seneca Nation Health System (SNHS) has received the Moderna, Pfizer-BioNTech, and Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) COVID-19 Vaccines from our supplier of choice, Indian Health Service (IHS). The Pfizer-BioNTech and Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) COVID-19 Vaccines may only be available for a limited time.


The schedule is key to the COVID-19 vaccination process. In order to have a safe, effective vaccination clinic and utilize the vaccine itself, without any waste, the schedule must be strictly adhered to.

SNHS welcomes all eligible individuals (Enrolled Senecas and other IHS eligible individuals), who may establish as a new patient or re-establish in our system. Ensuring high-quality patient care during this time is of the utmost importance, which includes establishing the least restrictive environment for those looking to register in order to receive the vaccination at the Health System. We are waiving the need for medical records and/or a physical before someone may receive the vaccine. If you have questions regarding eligibility or would like to establish as a patient please contact our Patient Benefits Department, see their contact information below.

Cattaraugus Indian Reservation Health Center 716-532-5582, ask for Leigh Snow or Vanessa Molina
Lionel R. John Health Center 716-945-5894, ask for Stacey Thompson or Renee Jackson


There are alternative locations to receive the COVID-19 vaccine for those now eligible through New York State’s distribution phases 1a and 1b. The demand is far higher than the current supply, but we are offering this information as an alternative resource to those eligible for the vaccine. Visit NYS Western New York Vaccine Provider list to find a provider and contact information to schedule an appointment.
