Decatur, Georgia (CBS46) — Decatur County gives $ 100 prepaid debit card to all COVID-19 vaccinated at Saturday’s vaccination event focused on the multicultural community along the Buford Highway Corridor Offers.

“DeKalb County’s focus on providing $ 100 incentives for vaccination has had a major impact on improving county vaccination rates,” said Michael Thurmond, CEO of DeKalb County. “In partnership with the DeKalb County Board of Health and Emory University and Emory Healthcare, DeKalb has improved vaccination rates in areas of high vaccine hesitation.”

Starting at 8 am, the DeKalb County Board of Health, Emory Healthcare, and DeKalb County Fire Rescue will provide voluntary COVID-19 vaccinations to people over the age of 12 at the old K-Mart in 5597 Buford Hwy. NE, Draville.

Anyone vaccinated will receive a $ 100 prepaid debit card.

People can stay in the car while being vaccinated, but walk-ups are also welcome.

Vaccination with COVID-19 is free, but participants are required to bring insurance information and photo ID (if available). There is no charge to participants, but Medicare, Medicaid, and most private insurance may be subject to administrative fees.

Everyone can choose between Johnson & Johnson, Moderna, and Pfizer vaccines. Booster vaccination is recommended for adults 18 years and older who have completed the first series of vaccines.

As of November 30, 400,652 people, or 53 percent, have been fully vaccinated in DeKalb County, according to the Georgia Public Health Service.
