(ATLANTA) – The Georgia Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency (GEMA/HS) is currently providing COVID-19 vaccinations with no appointment necessary at the Waycross Mall and Sandersville Word of Life Church Mass Vaccination Sites in Waycross and Sandersville, Georgia.

There are now a total of four GEMA/HS Mass Vaccination Sites not requiring appointments. All Georgians age 16 and older are eligible for vaccination, however only the Pfizer vaccine is approved for use in children between ages 16-17. Sites not requiring appointments are as follows:

“We are continuing to assess demand and make adjustments to the sites,” said GEMA/HS Director Chris Stallings. “We still want people to make appointments, but will allow anyone wanting to get vaccinated to drive up at these four locations. Having an appointment guarantees your vaccination is ready and waiting for you when you arrive on site.”

If you have already scheduled an appointment, you are strongly encouraged to arrive at the date and time of your appointment rather than drive-up.

Appointments are still necessary for vaccination at all other GEMA/HS Mass Vaccination Sites. Those eligible for vaccination can preregister for an appointment at any Site by visiting myvaccinegeorgia.com or by calling the Site-specific phone numbers. Those who require special assistance can use the TTY number. Only one appointment can be made per person.



As part of the Office of the Governor, the Georgia Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency collaborates with local, state and federal governments in partnership with private sector and non-governmental organizations to protect life and property against man-made and natural emergencies. GEMA/HS’s website and preparedness campaign provides Georgians with the knowledge needed to effectively prepare for disasters.
