Georgia expanded the list of those who qualify for COVID-19 vaccinations beginning this week.
As a result of that expansion people age 65 and older, along with first responders-including law enforcement-are eligible to receive the vaccine.
In order to meet the increased demand, the Northeast Health District is opening an appointment based, combination COVID-19 testing and vaccination drive-through in Athens. The new site is located at 355 Oneta Street. Former sites on Mitchell Bridge Road and the Winterville Center for Community and Culture are now closed.
