COVID Vaccine Scheduling

All Georgians 16 and over are eligible to receive COVID-19 vaccine.

Georgia is currently vaccinating all Georgians 16 and over.

Updated March 25, 2021

Starting March 25, 2021, all appointments made at Gwinnett, Newton and Rockdale County Health Departments vaccination sites will be facilitated through the Georgia Department of Public Health’s scheduling system. This change affects any appointments made on or after March 25.

If you have an appointment scheduled, you do not need to reschedule.

Second dose appointments will continue to be scheduled during first dose appointments.

If you have questions or need assistance scheduling an appointment, please call the Georgia Department of Public Health Vaccine Scheduling Resource Line 888-457-0186.

If you would like more information about the vaccine, including myths vs. facts, click here.

Vaccine is in high demand and limited in quantity. Vaccine availability is the limiting factor for making appointments in the short term while vaccine providers across the state (i.e. health departments, hospitals, physicians offices, pharmacies, etc.) await their order allocations.

Appointments are required and available for scheduling online only at this time. Walk-ins cannot be accommodated. Appointments cannot be made by visiting or calling our health centers.

The Health Department is releasing appointments only for the amount of vaccine currently in stock. If there are no appointments available, that means we have scheduled all appointments to exhaust our supply of vaccine. We will not release additional appointments until we have received more doses of vaccine to ensure we can meet demand. Thank you for your patience.

Rescheduling an appointment

We highly encourage individuals to make every effort possible to attend their vaccine appointment due to the limited supply of vaccine currently available. The Health Department does not reschedule missed appointments or appointments that are set at an inconvenient time. Individuals who missed an appointment or want to reschedule will need to try to make another appointment.

What to bring

  • Insurance card, if applicable. If you do not have insurance, there is still no cost to you. You will not be turned away.
  • Identification, if applicable. If you don’t have an ID, any piece of mail with your name and Georgia address will suffice.
  • Appointment confirmation
  • Someone to assist you, if needed
  • Personal mobility devices such as wheelchairs, canes, etc., if needed
  • If you are pregnant, please bring a note from your OB to your appointment

What to wear

Vaccinations are given in the upper arm. Wear loose, comfortable clothing that will allow access to your upper arm while maintaining a reasonable amount of modesty.

Masks, consistent with CDC guidance, are required throughout the vaccination site. 

  • Most homemade and store bought masks are appropriate and provide a level of protection for both the wearer and those around them. This includes the gaiter style face coverings which are sufficient if they are made of two layers.
  • Face shields alone do not meet these requirements; it is acceptable to wear a shield in addition to a face covering.
  • Face coverings with a vent or exhaust valve do not meet this requirement.

What to expect

  • When you arrive to the vaccination site, we request that you remain in your vehicle until 10 minutes before your appointment time.
  • When you approach the vaccination site entrance, an individual will confirm your appointment before allowing you inside. Individuals without appointments will not receive vaccine.
  • Please have your insurance card and identification ready, if applicable, at check-in. There is no charge for vaccine. Insurance will be filed, if available. This will not result in a charge to you.
  • Your second dose appointment will made at check-in.
  • Prior to receiving your vaccine, please let someone know if you need to use the restroom. After receiving the vaccine, you will not be able to leave the observation area for any reason for 15-30 minutes.
  • When your observation period is complete, visit the check-out area before you leave.

Second-dose appointments

Second-dose appointments are made during the first-appointment visit.

Moderna and Pfizer vaccines require individuals to return for a second vaccine after a few weeks of receiving the first dose to increase the vaccines’ effectiveness.

Individuals do not need to have the second dose exactly at the interval recommended by the vaccine manufacturer. Vaccine experts have said there is no reason to think the second dose won’t be as effective if it is not received in a narrow window of time. Therefore, if the second dose of the vaccine is administered >3 weeks after the first Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine dose or >1 month after the first Moderna vaccine dose, there is no need to restart the series. 


CDC Vaccination Cards

CDC vaccination cards are free.

If you are scheduled to receive your second dose of vaccine at one of our COVID-19 vaccination sites, you will receive a CDC vaccination card at your second dose appointment.

If you received both doses of vaccine but did not receive a CDC vaccination card, you can receive one by visiting one of our health centers currently providing non-COVID immunizations. At the time of writing this, those locations are Norcross Health Center and Newton Health Center. You’ll need to bring proof of COVID-19 vaccination you received at both vaccine appointments. If you lost this documentation, our health centers can provide a copy of your immunization record.
