The mobile vaccination clinic is offering Covid vaccinations and the newly formulated booster shot to anyone age 12 or up.
According to a press release, only only 32% of Dekalb residents have received a booster dose. The current booster has been newly formulated to provide broader protection against the strain of virus that is now predominant.
The vaccinations are FREE and voluntary.
This is a drive-thru event and you can remain in your vehicle — however, walk-ups are also welcome.
You don’t need an appointment, however, to shorten wait times, you’re encouraged to register at: www.dekalbcountyga.gov/getvaxxed.
If you have a photo ID and/or health insurance card, please bring them. If you don’t have these items, you are still eligible.
If you cannot attend this mobile vaccination clinic, you can check the Dekalb County calendar for other clinics.
According to a media alert, everyone will have a choice of either the Moderna or Pfizer vaccines.
