Glynn County has received the first shipment of the COVID-19 vaccine.
2,000 doses of the Pfizer vaccine have been shipped to Brunswick. The Coastal Health District is working on the logistics of thawing, preparing, and administering the vaccine, and began vaccinating front line public health staff on Monday afternoon, DPH states.
A broader vaccination program for high priority individuals in Glynn, Chatham, and surrounding counties is scheduled to begin on Tuesday. The district will reportedly make vaccine available to local hospitals as those facilities await their own deliveries.
