GEMA/HS Mass Vaccination Site in Columbus Will Begin Limiting the Number of Drive-Ups Allowed Starting Monday
(COLUMBUS) – Beginning Monday, the Georgia Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency (GEMA/HS) will be limiting the number of drive-ups to ensure the Site doesn’t go over its daily allocation.
The number of available drive-ups each day will vary based on the number of appointments for that day. For example, if the daily allotment is 1,000 and the Site has 500 appointments scheduled, the Site will allow 500 drive-ups. The only way to guarantee that you receive a vaccine is to have an appointment.
“Our goal is to administer the vaccine to as many Georgians as we can,” said GEMA/HS Director Chris Stallings. “Limiting the number of drive-ups helps ensure that we meet the daily allocation at this site without exceeding it.”
The Site will also have two separate lines for those with an appointment and those without to further streamline the process for those who made an appointment. Those who want the vaccine are highly encouraged to go to myvaccinegeorgia.com to preregister to make an appointment. This guarantees that they receive a vaccine and makes the process easier and quicker upon arriving to the Site.
The Gulfstream Aerospace Site in Savannah, Word of Life Church Site in Sandersville, and Waycross Mall Site in Waycross, remain open to drive-ups. All other GEMA/HS Mass Vaccination Sites are by appointment only. The Gulfstream Aerospace Site does not have a limit on drive-ups.
All adults 16 years of age and older can preregister for an appointment at any Site by visiting myvaccinegeorgia.com or by calling the Site-specific phone number listed below. Those who require special assistance can use the TTY number. Only one appointment can be made per person.
