Cobb COVID-19 vaccinations start Thursday at Jim Miller Park

Cobb coronavirus statement

UPDATED MONDAY, Jan. 11: The Cobb and Douglas Public Health COVID appointment page crashed Monday morning, due to “overwhelming response.” We’ll update when the page comes back online.


Cobb and Douglas Public Health announced Tuesday that COVID-19 vaccinations will be available for residents according to a priority list starting Thursday at Jim Miller Park.

The vaccinations will be administered by appointment only, and starting Thursday only for those eligible under Phase 1A—healthcare workers on the front lines. Here’s what the health agency is saying about those in that group:

“A vaccination appointment system has been created exclusively for Phase 1A participants and they will receive an email from CDPH on how to register after they complete the enrollment form. Participants in Group 1A will be asked for proof of healthcare personnel status and priority will be given to Cobb and Douglas County residents.”

Starting Tuesday, Jan. 12, those in Phase 1A+ will be able to get vaccinations. Those include public safety workers and any individuals age 65 and older. Cobb and Douglas Public Health said it will open an appointment system on Monday on its website.

For both of those groups, here’s how the vaccinations will take place:

“Participants will be asked to remain on-site for 15 minutes for post-vaccination observation. No walk-up appointments are available—participants must remain in their vehicle to receive the vaccine and be accessible to clinical staff providing the shot.”

Jim Miller Park is located at 2245 Callaway Road, Marietta. It’s been a full-time COVID-19 testing location for Cobb and Douglas Public Health since April and is conducting tests there and at other locations in Cobb; you can sign up to get tested by clicking here.

More vaccine information from CDPH can be found here.

Shortly before Christmas, Cobb and Douglas Public Health workers received the Moderna vaccine as part of an initial shipment of more than 150,000 COVID-19 vaccine doses to Georgia.

Private and other health care providers are also preparing to administer the vaccine starting next week.

  1. I keep requesting a date. A response would be better than nothing. 82, heart disease. Please help.

    “Proof of healthcare personnel status and priority”… what does this mean??

  2. My name is Linda a knight, I am 82 and blind , have a care giver need the next available appointment you have in February if not sooner? Please help me I am so scared!!!!

  3. Hi
    My grandmother is 90 and I my father in law is 70 we f care taker for my grandmother… we need the vaccine I have been trying to register online since 8.00 am this morning… can someone help pls

  4. I have been trying to book an appointment and I keep getting an error:

    403 – Forbidden Error
    You are not allowed to access this address.
    If the error persists, please contact the website webmaster.
    If you are the webmaster of this site please log in to Cpanel and check the Error Logs. You will find the exact reason for this error there.

    Common reasons for this error are:

    Incorrect file/directory permissions: Below 644.
    In order files to be read by the webserver, their permissions have to be equal or above 644. You can update file permissions with a FTP client or through cPanel’s File Manager.

    Restrictive Apache directives inside .htaccess file.
    There are two Apache directives which can cause this error – ‘Deny from’ and ‘Options -Indexes’.

  5. This is the worst roll out program. Did anyone with knowledge put this together? Come on do something professional. Cobb County has no glue how to plan for anything.

  6. I am 66 and live in Douglas county, Georgia. Do I have to travel to Cobb county to take the vaccine? Will Douglas county public health center be open to administer the vaccine?

  7. East Cobb News editor/publisher here with some important information for all readers, and those commenting here: We are an independent, community news site that provides information.

    Cobb and Douglas Public Health is the agency that is handling testing and vaccines and provides other COVID-19 information that we pass along here.

    Following up to a number of questions we’ve been getting here in the comments and via phone and e-mail: Cobb and Douglas Public Health is where you need to go to find out more about the vaccine rollout.

    I do not know when their website will be activated on Monday to accept appointments, and will try to post more information as I get it.

    I understand the urgency here but these are all the details I have for now.

    If you want to make an appointment, saying so here in the comments is not enough to book one. You must go to their website and do that.

    Here is the link for Cobb and Douglas Public Health information about the vaccine:

    I don’t want anyone to think that they can leave a request here in the comments and an appointment will be booked for them. Again: East Cobb News is a news site, not a public health agency.

  8. I’m 72 years old and I want the
    Vaccination , how do I go about getting one . .I have a pre existing condition High Blood Pressure along with Rare Auto immune .
