LAKELAND, Fla. — The state of Georgia has selected 139 Publix pharmacies to receive doses of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. While the total number of Georgia pharmacy locations is growing, not all of the previously announced 108 pharmacies will receive additional vaccines at this time. However, those pharmacies might receive more vaccines in the future.
“We’re grateful to continue working with the state of Georgia to administer COVID-19 vaccinations to our Georgia communities,” said Publix CEO Todd Jones. “As more doses become available, it’s our hope we can help more people in our communities receive this important vaccination.”
In accordance with the state’s guidelines, vaccinations are currently being offered to first responders, health care workers, individuals ages 65 and older and their caregivers, and residents and staff of long-term care facilities.
Vaccinations are provided by appointment only, while supplies last, through the online reservation system at publix.com/covidvaccine. The system will open Tuesday, Jan. 26 at 6 a.m. Eastern time for appointment times starting Thursday, Jan. 28 through Saturday, Jan. 30. Appointments cannot be made by calling Publix or the Publix Pharmacy.
