COLUMBUS, Ga (WRBL) – The Columbus Mayor’s Office has released a statement with regards to the COVID-19 Vaccination registration process for Columbus.

“In partnership with federal, state, and local agencies, an additional vaccination clinic/process has
been established to provide COVID-19 vaccinations. The main goal of this clinic is to provide vaccines to the public as they become available. The manufacturers of the vaccines are currently workings to ensure that there will be enough doses for every American who wants one. However, right now, demand exceeds our supply.

The COVID-19 vaccine will be administered in Phase 1a which includes:

Healthcare workers (physicians, nurses, laboratory technicians, EMS personnel,
environmental services, etc.)

Residents and staff of long-term care facilities

Adults aged 65+ and their caregivers (effective January 11, 2021)

Law enforcement, firefighters, first responders (effective January 11, 2021)
