(Ringgold, GA – March 22, 2021) A partnership between Catoosa, Dade and Walker Counties will expand access to COVID-19 vaccines for northwest Georgia residents.
The Catoosa-Dade-Walker Vaccination Station at the Colonnade launches this week with several thousand vaccination appointments available on 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.
A direct link to the Vaccination Station sign-up site can also be found on the following government websites and Facebook pages:
- Catoosa County – catoosa.com; Catoosa County Government on Facebook
- Dade County – dadecounty-ga.gov; Dade County Georgia on Facebook
- Walker County – walkercountyga.gov; Walker County Georgia Government on Facebook
Appointments at the Vaccination Station are available Wednesday and Thursday of this week from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Additional appointment times, including evening hours, will be offered according to demand. A vaccination will be reserved for each individual who registers for an appointment. Failure to show up for a scheduled appointment means a vaccine is unavailable for someone else in need.
The vaccination process takes approximately 30-minutes from the time of arrival at the Colonnade. An express lane will be offered for those who fill out the required Vaccine Information and Consent form online in advance of their scheduled appointment, print it out and bring it with them to 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.
Vaccines available at the Catoosa-Dade-Walker Vaccination Station at the Colonnade site are made by Pfizer & Moderna.
