Local – Due to the winter weather in several areas across the nation, area health departments may have to reschedule some Covid-19 vaccine appointments, according to a media release from Zachary Taylor, Health Director with District 2 Public Health.

The release states that the winter weather across much of the nation has interrupted or delayed the shipment of Covid-19 vaccines to Georgia and there may be some appointment changes necessary, but please note that if you have a scheduled appointment, you will still receive your vaccination.

The vaccine delay may affect some residents who have scheduled either first or second-dose appointments. Public health may need to reschedule some appointments until more vaccine arrives. If your appointment is rescheduled, public health will contact you and give you a new time to come for your Covid-19 vaccination.

As soon as scheduled first-and-second-dose appointments are satisfied, and more vaccine is on-hand, public health will begin making new appointments.

If you are not contacted, then your appointment will be at the scheduled time.
