SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - State health agencies in Georgia and South Carolina have launched websites to try to help people find COVID-19 vaccination locations.

The Georgia Department of Public Health has made a list of COVID-19 vaccination sites across the state. You can see that list by clicking here.

The tool helps users search by county for a vaccine provider in their community, as well as providing a location and contact information for the provider. This is not a centralized scheduling tool.

The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control has made a map tool to find COVID-19 vaccinations in that state. You can view the map by clicking here.

Both state agencies say vaccine providers will be added/removed to the list. Also, to be patient as lots of locations are fully scheduled with appointments.

4 mass vaccination sites to open in Georgia

Four mass vaccination sites will open in Georgia on Monday, Feb. 22.

The four sites will be located at:

  • Delta Air Museum, 1220 Woolman Place SW, Hapeville, Georgia 30354
  • Albany Georgia Forestry Site, 2910 Newton Road, Albany, GA 31701
  • Habersham County Fairgrounds, 4235 Toccoa Highway Clarkesville, GA 30523
  • Macon Farmers Market, 2055 Eisenhower Parkway, Macon, GA 31206

The Georgia Emergency Management and Homeland Security agencies are opening the drive-through sites. The sites are expected to be able to vaccinate 1,100 people per day, per site. The sites will operate Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

“GEMA/HS’ efforts are designed to address the vaccination needs of underserved populations that have been hardest hit by COVID-19,” said Chris Stallings, GEMA/HS Director. “The four sites selected all have surrounding populations with high percentages of minorities and individuals with incomes below the poverty line.”

Appointments are mandatory and can be made by visiting a new website to help you pre-register for the COVID-19 vaccine. Those who fall under the Phase 1A Plus categories will be able to sign up. You do not have to be a resident of the county of a mass vaccination site to make an appointment.

The sign up is for those who have not already received their first or second dose of the vaccine.
