Board of Health Rescheduling Tuesday Second Dose Moderna Appointments Due to Weather-Related Shipment Delays

DCBOH WebmasterNews & Press Releases

DECATUR, Ga. – COVID-19 vaccine deliveries delays to DeKalb County Board of Health continue, due to the impacts of winter weather systems throughout a major portion of the United States.

As a result of this delay, second dose Moderna vaccinations, scheduled for Tuesday at our vaccination sites in Doraville and Stonecrest, will need to be rescheduled. Individuals with appointments are being contacted via email and phone regarding this situation and will be informed of their new appointment date once vaccine becomes available.

Alternatively, for Georgians that have not received their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine, there is now the option of pre-registering for the COVID-19 vaccine at myvaccinegeorgia.com. Even if individuals are not yet eligible, they can sign up and receive updates about eligibility. Vaccine appointments secured through this website will be administered by the Georgia Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency (GEMA/HS) at the Delta Flight Museum, located near Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
