Dear Valued Patient,
We have been overwhelmed with calls and emails asking about COVID vaccines. We know many of our patients are anxiously waiting for availability of a vaccine against SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19). Lake Country Medical Concierge has registered with the state of Georgia to obtain and administer the vaccine, but as of today, we have not yet received approval. We currently are keeping a “waitlist” for vaccination. If you want to join the list, please send us an email at email@example.com.
The Georgia Department of Public Health provides excellent information on the vaccines and timing. Georgia is currently in Phase 1A+ of distribution.
Once approval is granted for vaccine distribution through our practice, we will begin calling patients to schedule vaccination in alignment with the GPH Priority Group Phase. Appointments for second doses will be scheduled at the time of first dose administration.
Vaccination may also be available in community pharmacies — especially larger chains as well as through public health/county vaccination clinics.
Starting Thursday, March 25, all Georgians aged 16 years and older can get vaccinated against COVID-19.
Please note only the Pfizer vaccine is approved for people aged 16 to 17. All three FDA-approved vaccines — from Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson and Johnson — are available to those 18 and older.
It’s critical to schedule vaccination in advance as supplies are limited. To find vaccination sites — including appointment info for each one — check the Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH) website: https://dph.georgia.gov/locations/covid-vaccination-site
The goal of COVID vaccines is to provide the safest way to achieve herd immunity, where a large enough percentage of the population is protected, making the spread of disease from person to person less likely.
