DECATUR, GA – The DeKalb County Board of Health has received its first doses of Moderna (for ages 6 months to 5 years old) and Pfizer (for 6 months to 4 years old) COVID-19 vaccine.
Parents or guardians may schedule an appointment online or by visiting one of the Board of Health’s four regional health center locations:
Everyone 6 months and older is eligible for COVID vaccination and booster doses of COVID vaccine are recommended for individuals age 5 and older.
COVID-19 vaccinations are free. However, if you have insurance, please bring your insurance information and photo ID with you. An administration fee may be applied for Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurance. You will not receive a bill from the DeKalb County Board of Health or your insurance company for the administration fee. Not having insurance will not prevent you from getting the COVID-19 vaccine.
An adult must accompany children 6 months – 17 years old to get a vaccine. If the adult present is not the parent or legal guardian, the parent or legal guardian must complete a consent form, and the adult must bring it to the appointment.
