GEMA/HS Mass Vaccination Site in Albany Now Providing COVID-19 Vaccinations With No Appointment Necessary
(ALBANY) – The Georgia Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency (GEMA/HS) is currently providing COVID-19 vaccinations with no appointment necessary at the Mass Vaccination Site in Albany, GA.
Eligible residents can drive into the Albany Georgia Forestry Site, 1150 West Oakridge Drive, Albany, GA 31707. Eligibility is still limited to residents of the State of Georgia who are included in Phase 1A+. This includes healthcare workers, residents and staff of long-term care facilities, adults aged 65+ and their caregivers, and first responders (law enforcement, fire personnel including volunteer fire departments, dispatchers and 9-1-1 operators).
“In order to increase the number of vaccines distributed, at the Albany site only, we are allowing eligible people to drive up with no appointment necessary,” said GEMA/HS Director Chris Stallings. “If you have an appointment you are guaranteed to receive a vaccine as scheduled, but if you don’t, we will administer vaccines until we run out of each day’s allotment.”
Appointments are still necessary for vaccination at the GEMA/HS Mass Vaccination Sites in Habersham County, Bibb County and Fulton County. Those eligible for vaccination can still preregister for an appointment at any Site by visiting http://myvaccinegeorgia.com or by calling the Site-specific phone number listed below. Those who require special assistance can use the TTY number. Registrants who do not meet the eligibility criteria will not receive a vaccine. Only one appointment can be made per person.
