Magistrate Court Offers Free COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic
Chief Magistrate Judge Brendan F. Murphy and Sheriff Craig D. Owens, Sr. will host “The People’s Court Vaccination Clinic” this Thursday, July 8th. This makeshift clinic will provide FREE COVID-19 vaccines with no appointment necessary and walk-ins encouraged.
The clinic will run from 8 am - 1 pm and will be set up in Courtroom M402 on the fourth floor at the Magistrate Court of Cobb County, 32 Waddell St., Marietta, GA 30090. First or second doses will be provided. Johnson & Johnson (1 shot) and Pfizer (2 shots - second appointment scheduled before you leave) available. These vaccines were made possible through a partnership with the Department of Public Health and non-profit organization CORE (Community Organized Relief Effort).
This clinic is being held in conjunction with Magistrate Courts across Metro Atlanta as part of a friendly “People’s Courts Vaccination Challenge.” The first event was held last week at the Magistrate Court of Fulton County, and Cobb’s event on Thursday will be followed up by a similar clinic offered at the Magistrate Court of Rockdale County on Friday.
“At the Magistrate Court, we work hard to break down barriers to ensure access to justice for everyone in our community,” said Cobb’s Chief Magistrate Brendan Murphy. “We jumped at the opportunity to help do the same for public health by bringing this free clinic to the courthouse where we serve some of the most vulnerable each day.”
