DCBOHWebmasterDeKalb Public Health News

DECATUR, Ga. – In collaboration with the Georgia Department of Public Health, the DeKalb County Board of Health has received additional monkeypox vaccine to offer appointments for additional large vaccination events.

The next vaccination events will be held on Thurs. Aug. 11 and Fri., Aug. 12, from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. at the North DeKalb Health Center, located at 3807 Clairmont Rd., NE, in Chamblee. A total of 240 appointments will be available each day.

Appointments are required due to limited vaccine availability and can be obtained by visiting the Board of Health website on Tues. evening, Aug. 9. If individuals experience issues with the appointment link, there may be several issues preventing access – your internet connection, the volume of others attempting to access the link, or all appointments having been filled. The form will disable when all appointments are filled.

Additional vaccination events will be forthcoming in the weeks ahead. Anyone who is unable to register should keep checking the Board of Health’s website and official social media platforms.
