Cobb and Douglas Public Health will be taking appointments for next week to get the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine for those in the current risk group.
Please see their latest update with links here

Remember:
  - They will only take appointments for the following week due to uncertainty about supply after that.
  - Due to the high demand for appointments the website or registration page may not be available.
  - Please visit cobbanddouglaspublichealth.com for information on when appointments fill up.
  - You do NOT have to receive a vaccination in the county where you live.  Also, many private providers are now offering the vaccine.  Use webpages like https://dph.georgia.gov/locations/covid-vaccination-site to find other locations.

The vaccination effort at Jim R. Miller Park is being run by Cobb and Douglas Public Health, which is a division of the state Department of Public Health.

The COVID appointment website has been overwhelmed by the response and has been experiencing access issues.  Most of the appointment slots have been filled.

Please visit https://dph.georgia.gov/locations/covid-vaccination-site for potential alternate locations.

Also, you can continue to check http://www.cdphcovidvaccineappointments.com when the website is fully restored.

More information was posted in a video you can watch here.

We apologize for the continued inconvenience.

Cobb & Douglas Public Health to Provide COVID-19 Vaccinations at Jim R. Miller Park

Cobb & Douglas Public Health (CDPH) will begin administering the COVID-19 vaccine to residents in Phase 1A on Thursday, January 7 at Jim R. Miller Park instead of the current site at the Marietta Public Health Center. Phase 1A includes healthcare personnel working on the front lines of the pandemic. 

A vaccination appointment system has been created exclusively for Phase 1A participants and they will receive an email from CDPH on how to register after they complete the enrollment form. Participants in Group 1A will be asked for proof of healthcare personnel status and priority will be given to Cobb and Douglas County residents.    

Beginning on Tuesday, January 12, CDPH will begin vaccinating residents in Phase 1A+. This phase includes public safety professionals and individuals age 65 years and older. An appointment system for people in Phase 1A+ will be available on the CDPH website beginning on Monday, January 11.

Jim R. Miller Park has served as a full time COVID-19 testing site since April 2020 and will now serve as a full time COVID-19 vaccination site. CDPH will continue to offer COVID-19 testing at satellite locations throughout Cobb and Douglas Counties.  Testing registration may still be found on our website at www.cobbanddouglaspublichealth.com.

Points to Remember: CDPH will administer vaccines by appointment only. Participants will be asked to remain on-site for 15 minutes for post-vaccination observation. No walk-up appointments are available - participants must remain in their vehicle to receive the vaccine and be accessible to clinical staff providing the shot.  Residents are also reminded that many healthcare providers, in addition to public health, are gearing up to provide this service across the county next week.
