Effective March 30, 2021
Georgia Governor Brian Kemp has opened the COVID 19 vaccine eligibility to all over the age of 16. With this increase in eligibility, The Benefit Company thought you and your employees may find this as a helpful resource if searching for a vaccine location. TBC does not endorse or support any of the locations mentioned; we are offering this as a helpful resource.
Tools to Locate Vaccine
Vaccine Finder: www.vaccinefinder.org
Good Rx: www.goodrx.com/covid-19/vaccine
Get My Vaccine: www.getmyvaccine.org
Vaccine Spotter: www.vaccinespotter.org
Tip: These sites will let you know which locations carry COV/D-19 vaccines but won’t always be accurate regarding appointment availability.
“No Waste Lists”
You can also try calling around to individual pharmacies and ask to be added to their “no waste list.” Walmart seems to be the easiest place to get on a list. Also, some places will administer doses at the end of the day to people who show up without an appointment-in an effort to not throw away doses that would have expired otherwise.
Tip: Keep your phone handy if you get on one of these lists since you need to answer and be ready to immediately drive to the pharmacy.
Where to Book Vaccination Appointments
Tip: You need a Walgreens account to book; they usually add new appointments at midnight each night
Tip: Publix only adds new appointments on Thursdays at 7 am. Must look right at that time to find something! You will need the last 4 digits of the patient’s social security number. More tips located at end of the document.
Tip: Kroger adds appointments throughout the day but often between 7-9 pm each evening. If it won’t let you book a second dose appointment, look for a different Kroger location. When searching for a location, you only need to put in the first 3 numbers of the zip code.
Tip: Try calling your local Sam’s Club to score an appointment since their online system is not great due to erratic vaccine supply.
