MABLETON — As COVID-19 cases rise among the unvaccinated, the Mableton Farmers Market – a community service project of the Mableton Improvement Coalition – Cobb County PARKS, Cobb and Douglas Public Health and the nonprofit Community Organized Relief Effort are partnering to administer free COVID-19 vaccinations at the Mable House Complex.
The events will be held 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. July 22, Aug. 5 and Aug. 12.
The Johnson & Johnson vaccine will be the only one administered and only one dose is needed. Clients must be 18 years of age or older. Reservations are encouraged, but, walk-in clients will be accommodated as time and vaccine supply allow.
Although COVID hospitalization and death numbers have been declining for some time, the Delta variant is an increasingly serious threat. If you haven’t been vaccinated, health officials are urging you to take advantage of this opportunity.
CORE will host the event Aug. 5. You can make a reservation for either one of those dates online at douglasvax.coreresponse.org.
