Bourdeaux Visits Gwinnett Vaccine Distribution Site

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. — Today, United States Congresswoman Carolyn Bourdeaux (GA-07) toured the mass vaccination center at the Gwinnett Place Mall. Joining her were Dr. Audrey Arona, Chief Executive Officer/District Health Director, Gwinnett, Newton and Rockdale County Public Health Department, and Joe Allen, Executive Director, Gwinnett Community Improvement District (CID). 

Opened in early February, the Gwinnett Place Mall vaccination center is able to accommodate immunizing up to 3,000 people daily, as vaccine doses become more readily available. It is located on the first floor of the former Sears building. 

“I was pleased to take a tour of the truly impressive mass vaccination center at the Gwinnett Place Mall today, alongside Dr. Audrey Arona of the public health department and Joe Allen of the Gwinnett CID,” said Congresswoman Bourdeaux. “As we continue to distribute the vaccine, I want to thank Dr. Arona, Joe, County Commission Chair Nicole Love Hendrickson, and all of our county board representatives for their great work in getting this up and running.”
