Atlanta, GA — Drugstore chain CVS is now offering COVID-19 vaccine appointments in Georgia.
CVS will begin vaccinating people on Feb. 12, Gov. Brian Kemp’s office announced. Scheduling opened on Feb. 11 and most of the Atlanta area locations were already been booked as of Thursday evening, Feb. 11, according to the CVS website.
“Public-private partnerships have been critical to our vaccination efforts here in Georgia, helping to ensure long-term care facility residents and staff along with those in our priority populations have access to the vaccine,” Kemp said in a press release. “With limited supply and increasing demand, we are working diligently to administer the vaccine to as many Georgians in our Phase 1a+ populations as possible. I am grateful to CVS for their continued partnership in those efforts and look forward to continuing to work together to administer this life-saving vaccine to the people of Georgia.”
Currently, the state is in Phase 1A of its vaccination campaign.
“Patients must register in advance at CVS.com or through the CVS Pharmacy app, and people without online access can contact CVS customer service: (800) 746-7287,” the announcement from Kemp’s Office says. “Walk-in vaccinations without an appointment will not be provided. Vaccine appointments are also available through Kroger, Publix, Ingles, and Walmart. To find more locations and learn more about the COVID-19 vaccine, visit the Georgia Department of Public Health’s website.”
