Atrium Health Navicent to Open Drive-thru COVID-19 Vaccination Site

Vaccinations are available by appointment as supply allows

Atrium Health Navicent will open a drive-thru vaccination site outside the Family Health Center, located at 3780 Eisenhower Parkway in Macon, on Wednesday as part of the health system’s commitment to help slow the spread of COVID-19 through public vaccination services.

“We’re proud to open this drive-thru vaccination site and encourage everyone to get a COVID-19 vaccine when they’re able,” said Atrium Health Navicent President and CEO Delvecchio Finley. “Expanding access to the vaccines is another way that Atrium Health Navicent is on the front line of the pandemic fight, improving our community’s health and wellness, elevating hope and advancing healing for all.”

Vaccines will be available by appointment for individuals who qualify under phase 1a+ of Georgia’s priority distribution plan. Phase 1a+ includes first responders, healthcare workers and those who are at least 65 years old.

First and second vaccine doses are also available by appointment at The Wellness Center, located at 3797 Northside Drive in Macon. To schedule an appointment at either vaccination site, visit www.CovidsafeGA.org or call 478-633-SAFE (7233). Appointments are based on vaccine availability, which is allocated by and managed by the state.

“We are excited to open the Family Health Center’s drive-thru site in addition to the services already being provided at The Wellness Center and to medically vulnerable seniors through partnerships with the Macon Housing Authority and the Middle Georgia Regional Commission’s Area Agency on Aging,” said Dr. Sanford G. Duke, Chief Clinical Officer for Atrium Health Navicent. “With a goal of vaccinating as many 1a+ qualified people as possible, and in concert with the recent gubernatorial announcement, we stand ready to help protect our educational partners and residents in all the communities we serve.”
