Can I get a vaccination?

At this time, we are cleared by the Georgia Department of Public Health to provide vaccines within the Phase 1A group only. Practitioners and staff of large medical groups or hospitals who will receive their own supply of vaccines should get their vaccine through their employer.

If you are an individual healthcare provider or long-term care facility provider, resident or worker, or you need to have your entire practice receive the vaccine through our agency, please complete the information in the form below.

VACCINE LOCATOR

As we are able to provide the vaccine for additional phases, we will issue frequent announcements.  In the future, we will provide the vaccine for the general population (likely, in Spring/Summer 2021) based on vaccine availability.  Please check our website and all of our social media platforms for updates.
