Where can I get a COVID vaccine?

The Newnan Times-Herald

(Updated: Jan. 26, 2021, 12:40 p.m.)

The following local locations are administering the COVID-19 vaccine, as vaccines become available. Some providers are running a waiting list. All providers require appointments. The current COVID-19 vaccines require two doses, either 21 days or 28 days apart, depending on the manufacturer. Both doses must be from the same manufacturer.

Under Georgia’s Phase 1a, only certain people are eligible for vaccination. They are: those 65 and older and their caregivers; health care workers in a clinical setting, including environmental services workers; law enforcement and firefighters, and long-term care residents and staff.

Vaccinations are free; some providers may charge an administration fee. Some are not charging a fee for the uninsured but will bill insurance for those who have insurance.

• Georgia Department of Public Health District 4 operates mass vaccine clinics in multiple counties, when vaccine is available. There is currently no vaccine available, and the appointment line, at 762-888-8180, is closed until further notice.

• YourTown Health offers vaccines, when available, at its locations in Senoia and Palmetto. Plans are for a mass vaccination location in Palmetto. YourTown Health is not vaccinating caregivers of those over 65 unless the caregiver is also over 65 or a health care worker.
