GEORGIA DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC HEALTH
The Georgia Department of Public Health Northwest Health District has closed its online registration portal for adults 65 and older and their caregivers.
If you already registered online, please know the DPH has that information and will contact you just as soon as possible.
All COVID-19 immunizations are by appointment. To schedule an appointment, call your local county health department.
For health department phone numbers, go to nwgapublichealth.org and click on the county name at the top of the page.
If you have difficulty reaching your health department, please be patient and persistent. Keep calling.
Please do not call the health department or show up at the health department asking about previous registrations. Be assured you will be contacted sooner or later if you have already registered.
The DPH had to close online registration because the number of registrations they were receiving was increasing at a far greater rate than they are capable of scheduling appointments to immunize people with their limited vaccine supply.
The online registration portal for healthcare providers, workers, and first responders, however, remains active. You can find that portal at nwgapublichealth.org. If you use the online registration for healthcare providers, workers, and first responders, please make sure you register correctly and completely.
Vaccine supply at the moment in Northwest Georgia remains very limited. Health officials are uncertain how long it might be before it increases enough to allow them to notify you. Please be patient. They will notify you immediately when there is adequate vaccine available for your immunization.
