Closed POD – COVID-19 Vaccine Info Update

The Georgia Department of Public Health is currently administering COVID-19 vaccine in Phase 1a+, by appointment only! This includes:

  • Healthcare Workers
  • Residents and staff of long-term care facilities
  • Adults aged 65+ and their caregivers
  • Law enforcement, firefighters, first responders

At this time, Transfiguration Catholic Church has applied for distribution of the vaccine through our Closed POD. However, if and when such distribution and administration takes place, it will most likely be in Phase 4. Phase 4 will be for everyone residing in Georgia—not included in previous vaccination phases—for whom the vaccine is recommended. Children will be included, once the vaccine is approved for pediatric use. Depending on vaccine supply allocations from the federal government, it may be weeks or possibly months before widespread distribution begins in Phase 4. However, please be aware that things can change rapidly over the course of time. Therefore, we are in continual contact with Georgia Department of Public Health and Cobb and Douglas Public Health with regards to the latest changes and updates.
