DECATUR, Ga. – It’s time to get outside and get moving – while being safe!

On Saturday, Oct. 16, the DeKalb County Board of Health will host an “A Day at the Park” event, to promote park participation and physical activity. The event will be held at N.H. Scott Park, located at 2230 Tilson Rd. in Decatur, from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. The first 100 people to attend the event and complete a short survey on park participation and physical activity will receive a $10 gift card via email.

We will provide no-cost, voluntary COVID-19 vaccines via our mobile wellness clinic. Please bring your health insurance information and photo ID with you if you have them. We use this information to request reimbursement for vaccine administration. You will not receive a bill from the Board of Health or your health insurance (including Medicare and Medicaid). You can still get a COVID-19 vaccine if you do not have health insurance or a photo ID.

The “A Day at the Park” event is part of the Board of Health’s Local Efforts towards Addressing Disparities (LEAD) DeKalb initiative, funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health (REACH) grant.
