COVID 19 Vaccinations

As you are aware we have begun the delivery of the COVID 19 vaccine.  The quantity of the supply is limited and the timing of the delivery remains an unknown week-by-week.  In order to expedite the vaccination process, we are creating a waiting list.

DO NOT CALL the office to be added to the wait list.  Our staff is already overwhelmed with incoming calls.  To be added to the wait list please go to our website and click on the yellow button labeled COVID19 UPDATES. The link to sign up for the waitlist is at the top of the page.

We only provide the first (1st) dose via this wait list.  We are currently offering to those 65 and older. If you have received your first dose please return to the facility that you received that dose for your second dose. 

Please tell us your location preference.  Midtown, Barfield, or first available slot.

Please note whichever office you receive the first dose is where you will return for the second dose.

Dear Patient,

We appreciate your patience as we work to deliver the COVID-19 vaccine to patients ages 65 and over. As we had previously informed you, the vaccine quantity is limited. We were fortunate to receive a small shipment last week without prior notification, so we acted swiftly to administer what we had of the vaccine. Moving forward, we will work from a computer-generated list of randomly selected patients ages 65 and over that have been seen in the last 12 months, and we will be contacting those patients to schedule an appointment for the vaccine. There is very limited vaccine supply and appointment availability is reserved for those patients randomly selected. We are continuing to request additional vaccine as it becomes available. We will only be holding clinics at our Midtown and Sandy Springs offices.

Please note again we will contact you when we have vaccines and appointments available. Please do not continue to call the practice or send portal messages to the providers to receive a vaccine appointment, as vaccine appointments will not be scheduled this way. We encourage you to continue to contact your local health departments and pharmacies to sign up for the vaccine.

We are working on creating a content area on our website to post any updates we have regarding the vaccine.

Thank you for your patience – it is a privilege to serve our community in this capacity.
