Get vaccinated in DeKalb County

DeKalb County Commissioner Larry Johnson will host a free COVID-19 vaccination event on Monday, May 24, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., in the JenCare parking, 2124 Candler Road, Decatur, Georgia 30032.
This event will be held in partnership with the DeKalb County Board of Health, the DeKalb Human Services Department and JenCare Senior Medical Center.
“We are starting to experience a slower response rate with people getting the COVID-19 vaccine,” Commissioner Johnson said. “Therefore, we want to remove any obstacles and take the resources to the people for anyone that wants to be vaccinated–no appointment needed.”
The DeKalb Mobile Wellness Clinic will be onsite and licensed health professionals will administer Pfizer vaccinations to attendees. Members of the community 12 years old and older are encouraged to attend this free event, which will also feature a D.J., giveaways and wellness information on a variety of topics.
