Macon, GA – Shipments of the COVID-19 vaccine have shown up late. Both Pfizer and Moderna vaccines were set to arrive earlier this week.
The health officials urge everyone to remain calm, because the second dose of the vaccine can be administered up to six weeks after the first dose.
Michael Hokanson, public information officer with the North Central Health District, said:
“We have not had to make any changes or call people to reschedule their appointments but with each delay that becomes a greater and greater likelihood. And of course, if we do not get any vaccine at all before next week. We will not be able to release appointments for next week.”
Your health department will contact you by phone to reschedule, if necessary.
