Cobb and Douglas Public Health have converted the Jim R Miller Park facility from a testing center to a drive-through COVID vaccination center. Appointments are required and available in phases.
Phase 1A began on Thursday, January 7 for healthcare personnel working on the front lines of the pandemic. Participants are asked for proof of healthcare personnel status and priority is given to Cobb and Douglas County residents.
On Tuesday, January 12, phase 1A+ starts for public safety professionals and individuals age 65 years and older. An appointment system for people in Phase 1A+ will be available online at www.cobbanddouglaspublichealth.com beginning on Monday, January 11.
COVID-19 testing is no longer available at Jim Miller park, though it will still be available at many locations throughout the county. Testing registration is available online at www.cobbanddouglaspublichealth.com.
Vaccines are administered by appointment only (no walk-up appointments are available) and participants will be asked to remain on-site in their vehicles for 15 minutes for post-vaccination observation by medical professionals.
