MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) — Atrium Health Navicent will expand access to the COVID-19 vaccine to help slow the spread of the virus. 

The hospital opened a drive-thru vaccination site outside the Family Health Center on Eisenhower Parkway.

According to Atrium Health Navicent, vaccinations are available by appointment for people who qualify for Phase 1a+ of distribution while supplies last.

The first phase includes: 

  • first responders

The hospital says the site can deliver over 1000 vaccines daily.

“Next Monday, March 8. We will expand it to teachers, adults with disabilities, school workers, children with complex medical problems, and caregivers. We continue to follow the guidelines,” said Dr. Sandy Duke, with Atrium Health Navicent.
