Fulton County, Georgia (CBS46)-The Fulton County School Community is working overtime to provide free Covid-19 vaccines to employees, their families, and students over the age of 12.
The Student Health Services Coordinator at Fulton County School Lynn Meadows said:
The Fulton County School has partnered with the Fulton County Health Commission to encourage unvaccinated staff and families to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
“We are trying to target high-priced areas,” Meadows explained.
According to an employee survey at Fulton County School, 83% of FCS staff are currently vaccinated.
The FCS vaccination event had four sites where participants had to pre-register.
“So today we are giving a two-part Pfizer vaccine, so they will come today and come here 21 days later … 3 Saturdays from now and your second vaccination … The supply of Johnson and Johnson vaccines is limited for those who may not want that vaccine, “said Meadows.
Those who take that first step and decide to get the vaccine will be rewarded with cash.
“If you get your first vaccine, you’ll get $ 50 today, 21 days later or when you come back two Saturdays, and you’ll get $ 50, so you’ll get an incentive of $ 100 just to get the vaccine. You can, “says Meadows.
According to the staff, the event went smoothly.
They said the main goal was to reduce the current number of unvaccinated people.
