“I would like to thank our partners at the YMCA of Greater Rochester along with our local YMCA branches for their collaboration on this critical initiative to vaccinate Monroe County,” Bello says. “It is imperative that we continue to bring the vaccine closer to neighborhoods and familiar environments, and our YMCA branches offer great access to people across our county.”

We look forward to continuing to meet the needs of our community in new and different ways.”
