Former Atlanta Falcons star Warrick Dunn and the NFL Alumni Association teamed up this week with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Fulton County Health Department’s Mobile Vaccination Clinic to host a vaccine sign-up at Georgia State University’s Center Parc Stadium. Its purpose was “to further educate urbanites on the importance of getting vaccinated, provide public service announcements and host local … health connoisseurs,” The Atlanta Voice reported. “This initiative is about educating the community as to why they should get the vaccination and (for people to) get over their hesitancy, and to really trust what their doctors have to say about getting inoculated,” said Dunn. theatlantavoice.com
