The vaccination event is made possible
by a FEMA grant, approved by the Forsyth County Board of Commissioners during
their March 4 meeting.
“We are pleased to have received grant
funding to provide more vaccination appointments for residents,” said Forsyth
County EMA Director Chris Grimes. “The grant, which is a 100% match from FEMA,
allows us to acquire additional equipment needed, to hire additional medical
staff, rent the space needed for the event and to provide public outreach.”
The FEMA grant also allows Forsyth
County’s Public Transportation Department the ability to provide a ride to and
from the vaccination site for County residents in need of transportation.
Residents are eligible for two total round trips at no cost. To arrange
transportation for a scheduled vaccine appointment, call 770-781-2195.
