“We are excited to be able to help vaccinate residents not just in the communities we serve, but those who have traveled from as far away as Atlanta to receive vaccinations at our vaccine clinics,” said Dr. Sanford G. Duke, Chief Clinical Officer for Atrium Health Navicent. “COVID-19 vaccines have been determined to be safe and effective. We hope as many Georgians as possible will roll up a sleeve, receive protection against COVID-19 infection and help us in the fight to end the pandemic.”
Atrium Health Navicent is also participating in a growing number of community partnerships which are helping to ensure vulnerable populations such as seniors and those with difficulty accessing transportation receive protection against COVID-19.
Individuals with health questions about being vaccinated are asked to consult with their primary care physician.
