BOOSTER SHOT

Currently, the Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH) is awaiting recommendations from the CDC and the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) before releasing a plan to administer booster doses of Pfizer COVID vaccine in Georgia. The FDA’s discussion and review of data about the need for COVID vaccine boosters is a first step in the process; the same questions will be considered by ACIP during meetings currently scheduled for Sept. 22-23. When CDC/ACIP provide recommendations and guidelines for booster shots, DPH has the inventory to quickly ramp up access to Pfizer COVID vaccine statewide.

We will notify the public about when and where booster shots are available and who will be eligible as soon as we receive word - go HERE for the latest Update. Please monitor the news section of our website, and follow us on Facebook, Twitter and/or Instagram.
