STONECREST, GA—DeKalb County, in partnership with the DeKalb County Board of Health and Medcura Health, on Saturday(Aug. 28) administered an estimated 2,526 COVID-19 vaccinations during an outdoor event that featured music and celebrities at the Mall at Stonecrest. All persons receiving a vaccination also received a $100 prepaid debit card.
“This has been an amazing day for DeKalb County and the region,” DeKalb County CEO Michael Thurmond said. “We also served a very diverse group of people from surrounding counties, including Henry, Newton and Gwinnett.“That’s a good thing because COVID-19 is no respecter of County lines or city limits,” CEO Thurmond said. “We saved lives today.”

The vaccination event began at 8 a.m. and county officials had planned to end at 1 p.m., but extended the event until about 6 p.m.
