As noted, Fulton remains committed to doing its part to get vaccinations to all citizens and during these initial phases has been especially focused on reaching all seniors thru a range of innovative efforts. To track vaccine progress across the state, check out the STATE VACCINE DASHBOARD.
With the growing availability of vaccines, Georgia continues to expand the list of those eligible. Beginning Monday, March 15, 2021, those 55 years and older and 16 or older with high-risk conditions can also receive a vaccination. The Governor added he expects vaccines to be available to ALL Georgians early next month.
The state is adding five mass vaccination sites beginning March 15, 2021, bringing the total to nine.There are more than 2,000 private providers statewide. For appointments March 15 or later, there will be a state run system for appointments. Information can be found at COVID-19 VACCINATION APPOINTMENT GEORGIA. The Fulton hotline is 404-613-8150 and is available from 8 am to 5:30 pm on weekdays for more information or assistance.
If you are struggling with the appointment process, in addition to these resources, I encourage you to reach out to friends and neighbors and ask for their assistance or advice. It has been encouraging to see so many individuals and groups who have been helping out friends and neighbors via social media and other means to help navigate the process and help locate available appointments. We are indeed all in this together.
