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.
