The COVID-19 vaccine will be available to all Georgia residents aged 16 and above beginning this Thursday, March 25 as announced by Governor Brian Kemp Tuesday.

 

This announcement comes after the state received additional doses this week and officials are confident that there are ample appointment times and supply now available for those eligible individuals. Kemp indicated, in a recent press conference, that vaccination efforts thus far have reached enough older adults to now open up inoculation to the broadest possible population.


Figures from the Georgia Department of Public Health show just under 20% of the adult population in Georgia have received a minimum of one dose of the vaccination. A little over 2.1 million people have received at least one dose and 1.1 million are fully vaccinated as of the latest data. This leaves a lot of opportunity for upcoming vaccination clinics. Coffee Regional Medical Center urges all eligible individuals to be vaccinated as soon as possible.

 

Coffee Regional Medical Center vaccination call center is open and taking appointments for all individuals aged 16 and older. Vaccinations will be given at our drive-thru location in Downtown Douglas at Central Square Complex Gym. For an appointment, please call 1-912-720-8306.
