City of Atlanta Implements COVID-19 Vaccination for First Responders

 ATLANTAXổ số Tây Ninh tuần trước—The City of Atlanta announced COVID-19 vaccination plans for administering the vaccine to essential frontline workers. To date, more than 100 public safety employees have received their first round of the COVID-19 vaccine. Those first to receive the vaccine are members of the Atlanta Fire Rescue Department (AFRD) and the Atlanta Police Department (APD), including public safety employees assigned to the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.

“The City is prepared to assist state and local partners as needed in administration of the COVID-19 vaccination,” said Mayor Bottoms. “Our public safety and first responder employees will be the first to be vaccinated, soon followed by other frontline employees.”

Once the City’s first responders and healthcare workers have received the first round of vaccines, the City will implement Phase 1b of the vaccination plan, which will include critical infrastructure employees at the Department of Watershed Management (DWM), the Department of Public Works (DPW), the Atlanta Department of Transportation (ADOT) and City personnel at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.

The vaccine is not mandatory, but highly encouraged. Vaccines are being administered by the Fulton County Department of Health. City of Atlanta officials are assisting in the administration of vaccines.
