ALBANY, Ga. (WALB) - Over the next few days, new COVID-19 vaccine sites are coming to South Georgia.

CORE, a nonprofit organization, is reaching out to south Georgia businesses and people to give them clear information about the vaccine.

Community Outreach Specialist Whitney Fields said they are starting a team of community mobilizers. These mobilizers will go out on foot and pass out flyers and educational materials to areas that need access to the vaccine.

“Our hope is that people are seeing our community mobilizers in the community before they’re seeing the vaccine pop-ups. They’ll be able to take that information, make their informed decision and ultimately, come get vaccinated with us,” said Fields.

They started this team after their last round of vaccine pop-up sites didn’t have a high turnout.

Some of the sites will be located in Sylvester, Edison, and Colquitt.
