SGMC Begins COVID-19 Vaccination Drive Thru Site
Tuesday, January 12th, 2021
South Georgia Medical Center will begin to vaccinate Georgians this week at the new COVID-19 vaccination drive thru. This comes after Georgia expanded its eligibility to include citizens 65 and older, area law enforcement, firefighters, and first responders. Vaccinations will be by appointment only and can be scheduled at sgmc.org
SGMC’s vaccination site allows citizens to schedule an appointment and utilize a drive thru to receive the vaccine. Recipients will then be monitored for 15 minutes after the vaccination is administered.
“SGMC is excited to be able to offer the region another option to receive their COVID-19 vaccination. Because vaccines are limited, citizens are encouraged to utilize SGMC’s online scheduling tool. This provides users the opportunity to learn more about the vaccine process and schedule their appointment,” says Scarlett Rivera, Director of Infection Prevention.
The site is located at the SGMC Main Campus Surgery Center parking lot at 2417 North Patterson. The vaccination team expects to vaccinate approximately 150 people per day beginning Wednesday, January 13, 2021.
