Atrium Health Navicent partnered with the Baldwin County School District to vaccinate students and school staff against COVID-19 during a special vaccination event last Friday at Navicent Health Baldwin.

Due to cold storage requirements, Atrium Health Navicent is one of the few local providers of the Pfizer vaccine, the only shot currently approved for use in children as young as 12.

Those vaccinated during Friday’s event will return to Navicent Health Baldwin for their second doses in June.

“The Baldwin County School District is excited to partner with Atrium Health Navicent to provide COVID-19 Pfizer vaccines to our students 12 years and older and their families,” said Baldwin County School Superintendent Dr. Noris Price. “This vaccination event is a great opportunity to provide our students with the chance to receive an additional layer of protection against the coronavirus.”

To make an appointment, visit www.CovidsafeGA.org or call 478-633-SAFE (7233). Appointments are based on vaccine availability, which is allocated and managed by the state. Vaccinated individuals and those waiting to be vaccinated are encouraged to continue to practice COVID-safe behaviors including wearing a mask in public, social distancing and frequent hand washing.
