GEMA/HS Mass Vaccination Site in Albany Closes
Vaccination Appointments Moved to Phoebe HealthWorks Location
(ALBANY) – The Georgia Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency (GEMA/HS) has closed the Georgia Forestry Commission Mass Vaccination Site in Albany, GA.
Beginning today, all previously scheduled vaccination appointments will be rescheduled for the Phoebe HealthWorks site located at 311 Third Ave., Albany, Georgia, 31701. Staff from Phoebe HealthWorks are actively contacting appointment holders and rescheduling appointments. Those who obtained their first dose of Pfizer vaccine at the mass vaccination site can schedule their second dose appointment with Phoebe HealthWorks.
“As availability of different vaccines is increasing we’ve seen a marked drop in the number of people utilizing the Georgia Forestry Commission Mass Vaccination Site in Albany,” said GEMA/HS Director Chris Stallings. “With the site averaging less than 100 appointments per day, we recognized the need to redistribute our vaccine supply and personnel to sites where we have seen high demand.”
While the Albany site has closed, there are two mass vaccination sites in the region that are operational; Waycross Mall and Columbus Civic Center. Additionally, there are six other sites statewide with available appointments. Appointments can be made by visiting 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.
