Walgreens Covid Vaccine Registration: Here’s what you need to know about signing up for a COVID-19 vaccine

Some Walgreens locations will begin COVID-19 vaccinations Wednesday in Georgia.

The pharmacy said in a news release the move comes after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention selected it to provide an initial allotment of more than 25,000 vaccinations in the state, as part of the Federal Retail Pharmacy Program. 

Vaccinations will start on Wednesday, Feb. 24 and eligible Georgians can make an appointment to receive the shots now.

The appointments for participating Walgreens can be booked online or by calling 1-800-Walgreens. Walk-ins will not be accepted.

Right now, the state is currently in phase 1A+ for eligibility. Those who are health care workers, long-term care facility residents and staff, adults 65 and older and their caregivers, along with law enforcement and fire personnel can receive the shots.

Gov. Brian Kemp hopes to expand eligibility soon.

“Given our significant progress in vaccinating the 1A+ population and the steady increase of our weekly allotment, we will be finalizing our expanded criteria in the coming days,” the governor said Monday. “Our goal is to protect those vulnerable to this virus and get Georgians back to normal as quickly as we can. My commitment is that we will continue to work around the clock to make that possible.”

  1. I opened an account with Walgreens hoping to register for the COVID-19 vaccination; however, the system stated that I am currently not eligible for the COVID vaccination according to my state’s eligibility requirements. Pennsylvania’s age eligibility for Phase 1A is 65 and over – I’m 66. Walgreen had only 2 selections for me to choose for eligibility – Over 75 years and None of the Above. Therefore, I believe I should be eligible to register for this vaccination program at Walgreen’s. Thanks!
