Citizens of Georgia Are Now Able To Sign Up For Vaccine Appointments Online
March 01, 2021
A new website has been created that will help streamline the process of scheduling COVID-19 vaccination appointments across the state of Georgia, according to Gov. Brian Kemp. On the report of a recent article by 11Alive titled "New Website Created for Georgians to Sign up for Vaccine Appointments"
Georgians are now able to pre-register for the vaccine on the website. Even if they are not yet eligible, they can sign up to receive eligibility updates.
Those who are in the 1A+ group can currently receive their shots in Georgia. Only some groups of people are eligible for the vaccine under this category, like those 65 and older, for instance. However, the Governor says there are plans for expanding the vaccination criteria in the near future. The state plans to receive about 200,000 doses each week which is roughly more than 80,000 more than they were previously receiving.
Governor Kemp has been criticized for refusing to extend vaccine eligibility. The Atlanta City Council passed a resolution urging the state to extend eligibility to include frontline staff. Store workers, agriculture workers, and teachers are expected to be eligible for vaccination. On the other hand, some people have said they don't want to be vaccinated.
