Not yet. However, our application to receive the vaccine from the State has been approved. We expect to receive our share of the vaccines allocation as soon as the State authorizes distribution and we receive them.
We are partnering with the State Government and the Georgia Department of Health to administer the Covid-19 vaccine as it becomes available, following the priority schedule provided by the CDC and the State of Georgia. We do not have a start date at this time but expect to start vaccinating patients soon. Availability will depend on vaccine supply and the phased administration schedule.
The CDC’s comprehensive FAQ sheet is a great resource. You may access it here: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/faq.html

We have no control over the type of the vaccine that we will be administering. That will depend on the type supplied to us by the Sate. However at this time, for individuals aged 16 and 17 who are in an eligible population for vaccination, Pfizer is the only vaccine currently approved for these ages.
The CDC has created a public health priority schedule ensure highest risk patients are inoculated first. Our state started with vaccinating people in high-risk groups in Phase 1A and 1B. Phase 1A includes healthcare workers and residents of long-term care facilities. Phase 1B includes Georgians over the age of 65 and persons 16+ with at least one chronic medical condition. Subsequent phases are now eligible, and they will include lower risk populations. Please visit GA DPH website for more information on each phase at https://dph.georgia.gov/covid-vaccine.
