The Coastal Health District will provide the single-dose COVID-19 vaccine from Johnson & Johnson during vaccine occasions in Liberty and Camden Counties this month. Anyone 18 or older who resides or works in Georgia qualifies for the vaccine, that is available by appointment at no cost. You don’t need to be vaccinated in the county where you reside, so all Georgians are all welcome.
The Liberty County event will be Wednesday, April 14th from 8:30 am-3:30 pm at the Shuman Recreation Center, 800 Tupelo Path in Hinesville.
The Camden County event will be Saturday, April 24th from 9 am-2 pm at Evergreen Baptist Church, 1365 Kinlaw Road in Woodbine.
If you require assistance with scheduling, please call the Coastal Health District COVID-19 Vaccine Phone Bank in 912-230-5506. The telephone bank is operational Monday through Thursday from 8 am-5pm and Fridays from 8 am-2 pm.
“The Janssen vaccine remains in short supply around the country, so we’re excited to offer this opportunity in our communities,” said Paige Lightsey, Immunization Coordinator for the Coastal Health District. “With Janssen you receive a highly effective immune response in a single vaccination.”
The Janssen vaccine by Johnson & Johnson does not require another dose. You’re considered fully vaccinated fourteen days after receiving one dose of Janssen.
