“We are excited by Gov. Kemp’s announcement that, on March 8, the state will expand the categories of those who are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine to include educators, school workers, adults with intellectual disabilities and parents of children with serious health issues.  We received a good supply of vaccines this week, and we believe our allotments will continue to grow as the number of vaccines the state receives increases.  We are fully prepared to meet the additional demand that we know is coming, and we encourage everyone who is eligible to receive the vaccine to do so as soon as they are able,” said Scott Steiner, Phoebe Putney Health System President and CEO.  “We are grateful that the state opened a mass vaccination site in Albany this week.  We know it will be especially helpful once the current phase of vaccinations expands and demand increases.  As more Georgians get vaccinated, the end of this devastating pandemic is truly in sight, and we must continue to support each other and do what is wise and right to get to the finish line,” Steiner added.

Georgians can schedule a vaccination appointment at a Phoebe site by calling the Phoebe COVID-19 Vaccine Hotline at 229-312-1919, by downloading the Phoebe Access mobile app.
