Southwell to Open COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic in Adel

Wednesday, January 20th, 2021

Southwell Medical will begin administering COVID-19 vaccinations by appointment only to qualifying populations within the community on the Southwell Medical Campus in Adel, Georgia. A drive thru clinic will be held on the Southwell Medical Campus for the next 4 Wednesdays; January 20th, 27th, and February 3rd and 10th.

 The vaccinations will be available to persons over the age of 65; first responders, such as police officers, fire fighters, and EMS personnel; and healthcare workers who are not employed by Southwell. The vaccinations are by appointment only. Those who meet the eligibility criteria for the vaccination can call the drive-thru clinic’s request line at 229-353-2200 anytime to leave a message for scheduling. A representative will return your call and schedule your appointment. Patients who receive vaccines through the drive-thru clinic will receive the first dose of the two-part Moderna vaccine.

Their second vaccine will be scheduled while in the drive thru.

After receiving the vaccine, patients will be observed for 15-20 minutes by medical personnel to ensure they aren’t experiencing any side effects.

“We are excited about the opportunity to expand vaccinations to Cook County,” said Carol Smith, Southwell Chief Nursing Executive and Southwell Medical Chief Operating Officer. “We know that this expansion is an important step in vaccinating residents in all the counties making up our service area and are happy to provide them closer to home.”

 “We encourage everyone in the approved categories to receive this vaccine.” said Smith. “This is a crucial step in keeping our communities safe from this virus.”
