"We are excited to assist teachers and school staff in obtaining protection against COVID-19. We want to do what we can to help teachers, students and school staff feel safe as they enter classrooms each day," said Atrium Health Navicent President and CEO Delvecchio Finley. "Caring for those in our community who provide care for the most vulnerable is another part of our role in improving our community's health and wellness, elevating hope and advancing healing for all."

Beginning on Monday, March 8, vaccinations also will be available to teachers and school staff, in addition to individuals who qualify under phase 1a+ of Georgia's priority distribution plan, at Atrium Health Navicent's new Family Health Center drive-thru location and at The Wellness Center.

"We’re very thankful for our partnership with Atrium Health Navicent. As COVID-19 has proven, we are always better when we work together and this is a perfect demonstration of how partnerships make our community better and stronger," said Bibb County School District Superintendent Dr. Curtis Jones. "We understand the importance of schools being open and this effort helps us provide another layer of safety for our students and staff, and provides our employees with peace of mind as they work in their classrooms with students. Thank you, Atrium Health Navicent."
