mass vax

Governor Brian Kemp is hoping to get the word out for eligible Georgians to register for the COVID-19 vaccine shot.

On Sunday, Governor Kemp toured a mass vaccination site in Albany, Ga.

During the visit, Gov. Kemp encouraged Georgians in the southwest portion of the state to register for the COVID-19 vaccine shot.

The site in Albany is one of four mass vaccination sites in the state that will open on Monday.

Only Georgians in the 1A+ category can register for the vaccine at this time in Georgia.

Category 1A+ includes healthcare workers, long-term care facilities staff and residents, adults 65 and old, and their caregivers. Law enforcement and fire personnel are also included in the category.

During a press conference on Thursday, Governor Kemp said that in the next two weeks, the state will be looking to revise the list of who is eligible for the vaccine.

Officials noted, the Albany, Ga. mass vaccination sites can vaccinate as many as 1,100 people per day.
