Three Important Things to Know about the COVID-19 Vaccine

Information accurate as of 02/04/21 and applies to State of Georgia residents only.

Who can get the vaccine?

The vaccine will be administered in phases as determined by the state health agencies.  Below are the phases for Georgia.

We are in Phase 1A+

  • Healthcare workers
  • Staff and residents at long-term care facilities
  • Adults aged 65+ and their caregivers
  • Law enforcement, firefighters, first responders


  • Essential workers – education, food and agriculture, utilities, transportation


  • Individuals aged 16-64 with high-risk medical conditions


  • Individuals aged 40-63 in congregate settings


  • Individuals aged 16-39 in critical industries and at moderate risk of exposure – restaurants, hairstylists, barbers


  • All other Georgia residents aged 16+

How much will it cost?

There will be a $0 copay or cost-share.  This includes both doses when two doses are required.

Where is it available?

Availability varies widely and things are changing daily.  State and County Health departments have developed websites listing locations where vaccines are available and how to schedule appointments.  At this time, employers are not authorized to distribute the vaccine.  Here is the link to the Georgia Department of Health site: https://dph.georgia.gov/locations/covid-vaccination-site


Consult with your own attorney, physician, or financial advisor before taking any action.

I can't say enough good things about my experience. During my cancer diagnosis, the last thing you want to worry about... is how your Insurance Company is going to actually work for you. I of course, had many questions, which were always answered in "full detail". Amy Towe, our Insurance representative could not have been more helpful. She would check on things for me and always got me an answer promptly. Amy was always available when ever I had a question. She defiantly made the entire process easier. I truly can say enough about her. Her caring was so appreciated throughout my entire journey.Angela Adamsread more
