District 2 Public Health re-opening COVID mass vaccination sites in Cumming, Gainesville

By AccessWDUN Staff

District 2 Public Health is planning to re-open off-site COVID-19 mass vaccination sites in Cumming and Gainesville in anticipation of the upcoming flu season and potential COVID-19 vaccine booster shots.

According to a press release from the local health department, the new sites in Cumming and Gainesville will open Monday, Sept. 20, and will immediately offer Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines for those who have not been vaccinated.

The location in Cumming is at Northside Forsyth Hospital, Suite 360, located at 1200 Northside Forsyth Dr., Cumming, GA 30041. 

The Gainesville location is at the Chicopee Woods Agricultural Center, located at 1855 Calvary Church Rd., Gainesville, GA 30507.

Both sites will operate Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Appointments are not required, but appointments can be scheduled on the District 2 Public Health website

Administration of the booster dose will not occur at these locations until approval and guidance are granted by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices and FDA.

The release states if the booster dose is approved, the Georgia Department of Public Health has the inventory to increase access to the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine statewide. 

“We anticipate an increase in traffic in our health departments with the administration of both the COVID booster dose and flu vaccine,” Dr. Zachary Taylor, District 2 Public Health director said in a prepared statement. “By moving our COVID-19 operation off-site, we will alleviate the influx of people inside our waiting rooms.”
