The Southeast Georgia Health System has delivered 4,000 COVID-19 vaccinations in eight days since January 11.
Since receiving its initial vaccine supply in late-December, the Health System has received a total of 5,421 Pfizer-BioNTech doses and 2,500 Moderna doses. After offering the vaccine to its highest-risk team members, the Health System began offering the COVID-19 vaccine to Phase 1A+, including police officers, firefighters, first responders, and high-risk individuals age 65 and over and their caregivers.
The availability depends on the supply of vaccine supplies received. Once those supplies are received, the Health System will activate its online vaccine appointment scheduler at sghs.org/covid-19. Appointments will be available in Brunswick or Kingsland, but will be subject to change based on the vaccine supply. You must bring your Medicare card and a form of identification, wear a shirt that gives access to the upper arm and wear a mask. Following the vaccination, you will be required to remain in an observation area for 15 minutes to ensure you do not experience any adverse reaction. You must also be available for a second dose 21 or 28 days later, depending on the type of vaccine received.
