The health departments of the Georgia Department of Public Health’s Coastal Health District, which includes Camden and Glynn counties, are now offering COVID-19 vaccinations without appointments during specific times.

So while appointments are still recommended, they’re not required during those specific times.

“Now that vaccine is in good supply, we want to remove as many barriers to vaccination as possible,” said Paige Lightsey, immunization coordinator for the Coastal Health District. “The vaccine is free, plentiful, safe, and effective, and it’s our best tool to stop the pandemic. And now it’s easier than ever to get your shot.”

Walk-ins for COVID-19 vaccinations are only allowed during certain hours, which vary by county. The schedules for Camden and Glynn counties are posted below, and all of the schedules for walk-in vaccine availability at Coastal Health District clinics are posted online at chdcovidvax.org.

Anyone age 18 and older can receive the Moderna vaccine, and anyone 16 and older can receive the Pfizer vaccine. Both of those vaccines require two doses. When you receive your first dose in the two-dose series, an appointment will be made for your second dose.

The single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine will not be available for walk-ins, but specific J&J clinics will be offered at various locations. Check chdcovidvax.org for more details.
