News, Press Release

PRESS RELEASE

GAINESVILLE, GA – Public health continues to adjust schedules for services to provide more capacity for Covid-19 vaccinations. To best utilize our public health staff, changes will be made at the testing sites in Hall and Franklin County.

The testing site at Franklin County Health Department will close after Friday, January 8.

The testing site in Hall County, beginning January 11, will be open on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8:30 am to 12:00 pm. There will be no Saturday testing.

As previously announced, beginning on January 11, testing will be offered between 8:00 am to 9:00 am only, for symptomatic first responders, school employees and court system personnel by appointment at all 13 health departments. This change will help meet the demand for providing vaccines to more people as we work through the phases identified by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Beginning January 11, adults 65 years of age and older can receive the Covid-19 vaccine (based on vaccine availability). Residents should continue to monitor our web page www.phdistrict2.org, Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/district2publichealth and local media for announcements for vaccine availability.
