Beginning Monday, there will be four locations at which Georgians can receive a vaccination for COVID-19.
The state operated sites are located in Bibb (Macon), Dougherty (SWGA), Fulton (Atlanta), and Habersham (NEGA) counties.
Governor Kemp’s office said these sites are “strategically located near minority communities and will aim to administer 22,000 vaccines per week.”
“These four sites are an important next step in our continued vaccination efforts to protect our most vulnerable and at-risk Georgians,” Kemp said last week. “By strategically locating these sites near historically underserved communities, we will ensure more Georgians have access to the life-saving vaccine. These mass vaccination locations will be able to scale up quickly from the initial 22,000 doses per week capacity once the state is provided more supply from the federal government.”
As of Thursday, February 18, Georgia had administered 1,606,000 vaccines, 82% of the total shipment. Georgia will begin receiving another 198,000 first doses of the vaccine from the federal government next week. As the state’s weekly allocation continues to expand, more state-operated sites are being planned.
Don’t forget that not everyone is eligible to receive the vaccine in Georgia, as it is being rolled out in waves for varying demographics:
