Six-time Grammy-nominated violinist Ashanti Floyd will perform, and guests can win prizes including tickets to future shows.

“As an anchor of Midtown, we are hoping that this free event provides a more convenient and familiar setting for those still looking to get vaccinated,” shared Allan Vella, president and CEO of the Fox Theatre. “We are excited to play any part we can in getting Georgia back open as safely as possible.”

The Fox’s marquee will also feature a special message for those wishing to commemorate their vaccine.

Pre-registration is available and encouraged by visiting fultonvax.coreresponse.org. No proof of insurance or ID are required. Those who have had their first dose of vaccine elsewhere are welcome to get their second shot at the Fox as long as they provide their vaccination card that shows proof of Pfizer vaccination, and it is at least 21 days since their first shot.
