COVID-19 Vaccination Phase 1A Expanded

Posted on December 31st, 2020
Phase 1A Expanded

Appointments are available online for individuals in Phase 1A.

On December 30, Governor Brian Kemp and Commissioner Kathleen Toomey announced that Georgia would expand COVID-19 Vaccination Phase 1A to include a larger priority group, including law enforcement officers, firefighters, and other first responders and individuals 65 and older. The expanded administration of vaccine is dependent on vaccine supply and capacity. We ask for everyone’s continued patience.

Because of the high demand for vaccinations, we recommend checking availability with your local healthcare provider as vaccines become more available in our communities.

The Georgia Department of Public Health and Gwinnett, Newton and Rockdale County Health Departments are following the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) for prioritizing vaccination.

More information will be available on our website regarding how to make an appointment when we expand vaccine availability. If you have questions about the COVID-19 vaccine, please call the Georgia COVID-19 Vaccine Hotline: (888) 357-0169.
