The City of Statesboro & Squashing the Spread Bulloch administered free COVID-19 vaccines at pop-up events Saturday morning, June 12th at both Walmart locations and Food Lion. They were not able to offer the clinic at Food World due to a scheduling conflict.

The vaccines were administered by Walmart pharmacist at the Walmart locations and by CORE a non-profit focused on vaccinations (no connection to Statesboro’s CORE Credit Union).

In addition 11 volunteers staffed the pop-up vaccine clinics.
