Working adults, high school students and other northwest Georgia residents who want a COVID-19 vaccine now have an evening option. The Catoosa-Dade-Walker Vaccination Station at the Colonnade will open from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. this Friday, March 26.
900 appointments are now available for Friday’s vaccination event at the Colonnade, 264 Catoosa Circle in Ringgold. The new date was added just hours after the Vaccination Station launched this week with several thousand COVID-19 vaccination appointments for Wednesday, March 24 and Thursday, March 25.
The three counties combined resources to offer safe, fast and free protection against the coronavirus with a regional drive-thru vaccination site at the Colonnade, 264 Catoosa Circle in Ringgold.
Eligible Georgia residents, as well as eligible Georgia workers who live in neighboring counties in Tennessee and Alabama, can now sign up online for an appointment here.
By registering for an appointment, a vaccination will be reserved for each person. Failure to show up for a scheduled appointment means a vaccine is unavailable for someone else in need.
The vaccination process takes about 30-minutes from the time of arrival at the Colonnade. An express lane will be offered for those who bring their printed and completed Vaccine Information and Consent form in advance of their scheduled appointment at the Vaccination Station.
COVID-19 vaccines have been deemed safe and effective by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The CDC recommends getting a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as you are eligible. The vaccine remains the most effective tool available for getting families, communities, schools and workplaces “back to normal” sooner.
The Pfizer vaccine, which will be given at the Vaccination Station on Friday, is approved for people 16 years of age and older under the Emergency Use Authorization issued by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Children ages 16 and 17 who book an appointment at the Vaccination Station must be accompanied by an adult authorized to sign their vaccine consent form.
