Vaccine Distribution Expansion

Health Departments in all Coastal Health District counties have received an overwhelming response from residents ages 65 and older interested in COVID-19 vaccination. Based on the number of calls taken to date, health departments in all eight counties have enough requests to schedule appointments through February and, in some cases, into March. 

To ensure the Coastal Health District has adequate vaccine to fulfill appointment requests, including second doses, they have temporarily paused appointment scheduling for new requests.

Individuals who are already in their system and awaiting call-back will still be given an appointment.

Beginning January 11, 2021, the COVID-19 vaccination is available to adults age 65 and older, their caregivers, and emergency first responders through the Coastal Georgia Health District. The scheduling has been temporarily paused.
