COVID-19 VACCINE INFORMATION
No appointment is needed for COVID-19 Vaccination in the North Georgia Health District at Public Health Departments in Cherokee, Fannin, Gilmer, Murray, Pickens and Whitfield counties. There is NO cost to clients, regardless of healthcare coverage.  No identification is required. Please visit the North Georgia health District website for further information.

Additional vaccination sites in Georgia:
Georgia Department of Public Health COVID Vaccination Site Location Tool has launched a COVID Vaccination Site Location tool on their website.

Who is currently eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine in Georgia?
All Georgians age 5 and older will be eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

Vaccination, along with strict compliance with basic prevention measures - wear a mask, stay six feet from others, avoid large gatherings, wash your hands frequently - will help Georgia stop the spread of COVID-19.

Anyone experiencing signs or symptoms of COVID-19 should be tested, regardless of vaccination status or prior infection. Follow the advice of your health care provider about what you should do while you wait for your test results. COVID testing not only helps DPH control and mitigate infection, but it also provides valuable information about variants when positive test results are sequenced.
