ATLANTA – As the Fulton County Board of Health (FCBOH) and its COVID vaccine partners try to reach as many residents as possible with the latest bivalent booster shots, FCBOH along with Fulton County Government and CORE Georgia will host a major vaccine event in the atrium of Atlanta’s Greenbriar Mall and a $100 digital incentive will be available for individuals receiving any dose of the vaccine.
The event is scheduled for:
2841 Greenbriar Parkway SW
Atlanta, GA 30331
Saturday, October 29, 2022

“As winter is approaching, there is an increased urgency to getting the maximum amount of protection to the communities we serve,” says Fulton County Board of Health District Director Dr. Lynn Paxton. “Through this event, we hope to reach a large number of people in the Atlanta metropolitan area with the most up to date protection from serious illness from the current strains of the virus. We also hope financial incentives may encourage more people to take advantage of this opportunity to protect your community.”
