COVID-19 Vaccine Information
AgeWell Atlanta encourages all members of the community to get vaccinated against COVID-19 in the upcoming months, when possible. Choosing to vaccinate is one way to protect yourself and your loved ones. It is important to continue using all of the tools available to help stop this pandemic as we learn more about how COVID-19 vaccines work in real-world conditions: cover your mouth and nose with a mask when around others; stay at least 6 feet away from others; avoid crowds, and wash your hands often.
Georgia is now vaccinating as of 3/25/2021:
- Georgia eligibility is open for everyone 16 years of age and older for the COVID vaccine.
- For individuals aged 16 and 17 who are in an eligible population for vaccination, Pfizer is the only vaccine currently approved for these ages. Please schedule an appointment at CVS or Walgreens or at one of the GEMA mass vaccination sites to ensure Pfizer vaccine is available.
Per the DPH “COVID-19 vaccines continue to arrive in Georgia in extremely limited supply. As we await additional vaccine supply from the Federal Government, we urge Georgia residents to pre-register today for one of the available mass vaccination sites in our state.
Visit the Georgia Department of Public Health for a complete listing of all participating vaccination sites.
