COBB COUNTY, GA — The Magistrate Court of Cobb County will be hosting the “People’s Court Vaccination Clinic” on July 8.

The makeshift clinic will open in Courtroom M402 on the fourth floor at the Magistrate Court of Cobb County, 32 Waddell St., Marietta, GA 30090. Residents can come from 8 a.m. - 1 p.m. without a prior appointment.

The clinic will provide a one-time vaccination with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. And the Pfizer vaccines, which will need two shots. The Pfizer vaccines were approved for children between the age of 12 and 17 years old.

This effort is made possible through a partnership with the Department of Public Health and non-profit organization CORE (Community Organized Relief Effort).

Cobb’s Chief Magistrate Brendan Murphy said, “We jumped at the opportunity to help do the same for public health by bringing this free clinic to the courthouse where we serve some of the most vulnerable each day.”

This vaccination event is a part of the “People’s Courts Vaccination Challenge” program held in conjunction with Magistrate Courts across Metro Atlanta.

The program started last week at the Magistrate Court of Fulton County. The next stop will be the Magistrate Court of Rockdale County on Friday.

People can also vaccinate in the Marietta Public Health Center. It is located at 1650 County Services Parkway, Marietta, Georgia 30008, Monday - Friday from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.

People may walk in for the vaccination. They can also schedule an appointment by visiting this link.
