Mass vaccination site at Mercedes-Benz Stadium closing June 7

The Southeast’s largest mass vaccination site will be closing on June 7.

Mercedes-Benz Stadium opened on March 24 offering the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine initially distributing an average of 42,000 vaccines a week or 6,000 a day. Although, so days more than doubled that amount.

The announcement to close the facility after 75-days in operation came a week after Georgia’s mass vaccination sites closed and was a week earlier than intended.

The project was a collaboration between FEMA, the Georgia Department of Public Health, Fulton County, the Office of Emergency Management and Homeland Security, and the stadium.
