COVID-19 Vaccination Appointment
Vaccinate Clayton Update
The Official end of the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency (PHE) is May 11, 2023. One of the practical effects of the declaration to end the PHE is that the COVID-19 reporting requirements change at all levels—federal, state, and local. Thus, the Clayton County Health Department District Department of Epidemiology will no longer report COVID-19 data with the level of detail to which you may have become acustomed.
Moving forward, we are asking all stakeholders to access COVID-19-related data through the following websites:

The Clayton County Health District will continue to provide COVID-19 testing, surveillance, and immunizations as we move forward into our next phase of COVID-19 managment.

At least 2 months after a 1-dose vaccine, Johnson & Johnson/Janssen
At least 6 months after a 2-dose vaccine, Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna
Eligible individuals may choose which vaccine they receive as a booster dose. Some people may have a preference for the vaccine type that they originally received and others, may prefer to get a different booster. CDC’s recommendations now allow for this type of mix and match dosing for booster shots.
Not all types of vaccines will be available at all sites. For information about COVID vaccines or to schedule a vaccination appointment visit dph.ga.gov/covid-vaccine or vaccinefinder.org.
