Things are changing rapidly. With the Pfizer vaccine now fully approved by the FDA for individuals 16 and older, people wonder might wonder if their 12-year-olds can get the vaccine. They can! With so many questions about vaccines, boosters, mandates, and school protocols, we’ve tried to provide some answers in this issue. We are also holding special COVID Town Hall television shows on Wednesday, September 22 and 29 at 8 pm and Saturday, September 25 and October 1 on Channel 5 (Spectrum, Verizon, FiOS & DISH) and Channel (Over the Air Direc TV). Submit your questions to or call 716-204-8881. We want to hear from you!

For those of you who enjoy reading my publishers letters, see my article on page 7 to learn about one of my pet peeves.

Enjoy September and stay healthy,
