Governor Brian Kemp gave an update on COVID-19 vaccine distribution in Georgia on Tuesday afternoon at the State Capitol in Atlanta. He stated that he anticipates an uptick in vaccine supply from the Biden administration later this month, particularly of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine, and encouraged all eligible Georgians to make an appointment to be vaccinated. Although it has not been made official, Kemp told a reporter that he remains hopeful that all adult Georgians will be eligible to be vaccinated in early April. Tuesday’s update, for which Kemp was joined by Georgia Department of Public Health Commissioner Dr. Kathleen Toomey and Georgia Emergency Management – Homeland Security Agency Director Chris Stallings, was live streamed and may still be viewed on the Governor’s Facebook page and on his website at www.gov.georgia.gov. Kemp additionally announced that judges and court room staff have been added to the list of those eligible to be vaccinated here in Georgia.
The mass vaccination site at LakePoint Sports in Bartow County opens today. Pre-registration is available at www.MyVaccineGeorgia.com.
