Atlanta, GA – Today, Governor Kemp received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine at the Ware County Health Department in Waycross, Georgia. Like thousands of other Georgians, the Governor waited in line until he became eligible to receive the life-saving vaccine. Now that all Georgians 16+ are eligible, the Governor traveled to the southeastern part of the state to again reiterate that the vaccines are safe and effective.

"Like thousands of other Georgians, I was thrilled to roll up my sleeve and get the Johnson and Johnson vaccine today - and I was proud to have my youngest daughter, Amy Porter, join me as well," Governor Kemp said. "We are both feeling great and are so thankful for the medical miracle that is literally saving countless lives here in Georgia and around the world. We encourage every Georgian to join us and help our state get back to normal."

As of Thursday, March 25th, all Georgians 16+ are now eligible to receive the vaccine.
