ATLANTA (AP) — The White House on Friday announced that it will partner with Georgia to open a new mass vaccination center at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in downtown Atlanta.
The stadium will be capable of administering 42,000 doses of vaccine each week, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.
It will be open for seven days a week for an eight-week period.
The site should be open in the next two weeks, federal officials said.
Federal, state and local officials are now developing plans for the operations at the site.
