PAULDING COUNTY – Now that millions of doses have been administered, COVID-19 vaccines have been proven to provide safe, effective protection against the disease, including variants of the virus. All of the COVID-19 vaccines reduce the risk of severe illness and limit disease transmission in the community.

The more people in our community who are vaccinated, the better we can protect ourselves and one another.

People who are not vaccinated, especially those of older age, are at higher risk for severe illness.

Being vaccinated also means you can safely enjoy more activities and not be at risk of missing work or being asked to quarantine.

Below are upcoming chances to be vaccinated for COVID-19.

Vaccine clinics are open every Tuesday and Thursday at the Paulding County Health Department from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m.

All Paulding County Health Department vaccine clinics are free, and no appointment is needed.

Moderna, Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson vaccines are available at all clinics. Youth ages 12-17 are eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccine with a parent or guardian present.
