New Columbus clinic to provide COVID-19 vaccines

COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - An additional vaccination clinic has been created to provide COVID-19 vaccinations, according to Mayor Skip Henderson.

Mayor Henderson says the main goal of the clinic is to provide vaccines to the public as they are available.

Due to a large demand in the supply of vaccines, critical populations have been prioritized based on the level of risk for exposure or complications from the disease.

The Columbus Consolidated Government is administrating COVID-19 vaccines in Phase 1a. This will include the following:

  • Healthcare workers (physicians, nurses, laboratory technicians, EMS personnel, environmental services, etc.)
  • Residents and staff of long-term care facilities
  • Adults ages 65 years and older (and their caregivers effective Jan. 11, 2021)
  • Law enforcement, firefighters, first responders (effective Jan.11)

Vaccine supply is limited.

As of now, the Columbus Consolidated Government is scheduling vaccines by appointment only. Click here to schedule today. Mayor Henderson asks to only schedule an appointment if you are in group 1a. Walk-ins will not be permitted. The vaccines will be distributed at 616 19th Street in Columbus.
