PRESS RELEASED:

The DeKalb County Board of Health will open registration for Phase 1A+ on Friday, starting at noon. Appointments will start on Monday.

A registration and appointment link will be available on the dekalbhealth.net homepage. Individuals without access to the internet or those with special needs can call 404-294-3700 to obtain assistance from a call center representative.

Eligible groups in Phase 1A+ include:

  • Healthcare workers
    (physicians, nurses, laboratory technicians, EMS personnel, environmental services, etc.)
  • Residents and staff of long-term care facilities
  • Adults aged 65 and older and their caregivers as applicable
  • Law enforcement, firefighters, first responders

 

Please note, unless individuals fall into one of the above populations, spouses and family members are not eligible for vaccine administration at this time.

Vaccine is in high demand and supply still remains very limited. Vaccines will be given by appointment only based on vaccine availability. If there are no appointments available, that means we have exhausted our supply of vaccine. We will not release additional appointments until we have received more doses of vaccine to ensure we can meet the demand. No on-site registration will be permitted.
