ATLANTA, GA — Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms will join the Administration’s “We Can Do This” tour alongside Vice President Kamala Harris.

The nationwide tour aims to reach all Americans who still needed protection against COVID-19.

The tour will encourage people to get vaccinated and highlights the ease of getting vaccinated, mobilize grassroots vaccine education, and other outreach efforts. This tour is one of the efforts to help President Biden reached his goal to have 70% of Americans vaccinated by July 4th.

Mayor Bottoms will join Vice President Harris for the pop-up vaccine event at Historic Ebenezer Baptist Church. They will speak to health care professionals and residents receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.

Following the event, they will attend a vaccine mobilization event at Clark Atlanta University to discuss the importance of vaccines in Atlanta communities.

Meanwhile, in March, Bottoms Administration launched a strong vaccine campaign that is currently in Phase II. Through a comprehensive public health program, including door-to-door canvassing and community events, the city is taking part in activities to reach residents who are not vaccinated.

Besides the City of Atlanta’s partnership with CORE, Fulton County, Walgreens, faith-based institutions, and Atlanta Housing, the city will also partner with UBER to set pop-up vaccine sites and provide 10,000 free rides to vaccine sites and MARTA (Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority) for 40,000 free rides.

“Thanks to the leadership of the Biden Administration, our vaccination program has helped get nearly 50% of Atlantans vaccinated, contributing to a steep decline in COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths, across all age groups. Our work is far from over, and we are grateful for the Vice President’s commitment to ensuring everyone has access to this life-saving vaccine,” said Mayor Bottoms.
