The DeKalb County Board of Health has opened registration for Phase 1A+ for COVID-19. Appointments will start on Monday, Jan. 11.

Please note, unless individuals fall into one of the above populations, spouses and family members are not eligible for vaccine administration at this time.

Vaccine is in high demand and supply still remains very limited. Vaccines will be given by appointment only based on vaccine availability. If there are no appointments available, that means we have exhausted our supply of vaccine.

Acceptable forms of identification to verify proof of vaccine eligibility includes:

  • Driver’s license or identification card to verify age
