Georgia Vaccine Distribution Now Stands at 1.5 Million

The state says the Department of Public Health announced Wednesday that Georgia has administered 1,541,057 vaccines, 78% of the total amount shipped to the state by the federal government.

“Though we still have a long way to go, I am proud of the progress we have made in getting more vaccines administered to vulnerable Georgians,” said Governor Kemp. “We are working around the clock to ensure that as many of our frontline heroes and seniors can get the vaccine as soon as possible. As we await increased supply from the federal government and vaccine manufacturers, we continue to urge all Georgians to protect themselves and their loved ones by following public health guidance.”

First responders, law enforcement, and Georgians 65+ are currently eligible to receive a vaccine in the 1A+ category.
