WALKER CO., Ga. (WDEF)- Walker County has a new number for residents to submit their requests for a COVID-19 vaccine.
Beginning Monday, January 25th, the Walker County COVID-19 Vaccine Hotline, 706-670-1234, will be available from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Through a partnership with the Walker County Health Department, the new hotline will serve as ground zero for eligible residents to sign-up for the COVID-19 vaccine, which remains in extremely short supply. Currently in Georgia, the vaccine is only available to healthcare workers, first responders, long-term care residents and adults 65+ and their caregivers.
“Individuals who previously submitted their contact information through the Northwest Georgia DPH online portal are already on the wait list and do not need to call the hotline. In addition, those who have already received their first dose of the vaccine will be contacted directly to schedule an appointment for their second dose and do not need to call the hotline.”
