Georgia Receives First Shipment of the COVID-19 Vaccine An article released by 11Alive reported that the long-awaited vaccine against COVID-19 arrived at Georgia's Coastal Health District in a shipment carrying 5,850 doses. The nationwide distribution of the Pfizer vaccine started Monday and covered 80 different locations on that first day.

The first batch of the newly approved Pfizer vaccine contains 3 million doses, so people can get the first of the two doses needed for the vaccine to take effect. UPS and FedEx are taking care of getting the shipments to different parts of the country but have refrained from giving further details about future deliveries for security purposes.

As different Georgia counties like Atlanta and Glynn get ready to receive new shipments later this week, Gov. Brian Kemp reminded the population that it might take months for the vaccine to become available to the general public and reinstated the importance of following the CDC guidelines. The first rounds of vaccinations will focus on healthcare personnel and residents of long-term care facilities.
