Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta is teaming up with Fulton County to offer shots for teens between the ages of 16-20 at the Fulton County Health Department’s vaccination site in College Park.

They’re offering the Pfizer vaccine by scheduled appointment at the Georgia International Convention Center site in College Park.

CHOA says patients under the age of 18 will need a parent or guardian with them and they won’t be able to vaccinate 16-17 year old kids without adult supervision.

Those looking for the vaccine have the ability to go inside the GICC to receive their shot. CHOA says they’ll have nurses available for anyone who might have anxiety over getting vaccinated.

The hospital also wants parents to know they’ll provide nurses for curbside vaccinations for families not able to come inside the building due to patient medical conditions, anxiety or other issues.
