The virtual event with Gov. Kemp took place at 2 p.m. on Monday.
ATLANTA — With a COVID-19 vaccine in sight, plans are underway on how it will be distributed across the state. Gov. Brian Kemp held a roundtable discussion on Monday with nursing home administrators to talk about the “distribution in the coming weeks.”
On Nov. 18, a Georgia Department of Public Health spokeswoman said a 52-page plan has received approval from the CDC, but “there are still many unknowns about the vaccine itself, so it is still considered draft by DPH.”
During the roundtable, Kemp said that the current nursing home numbers were still below the summer surge.
There are many factors that come into play, including steps for storing, transporting, and eventually distributing it across Georgia.
