All Georgia residents age 16 and over are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. The vaccine is in high demand and supply is very limited. In the coming months, when larger amounts of vaccine become available, more people will be able to get the vaccine. In time, everyone who wants the vaccine will be able to get it. We ask for your patience and understanding during this process.
The John Lewis Commemorative Task Force was formed by a Joint Declaration of DeKalb County Commissioner Mereda Davis Johnson and Decatur City Mayor Patti Garrett on April 21, 2020. The purpose of the Task Force is to identify the best and most appropriate manner in which to commemorate the late Congressman John Lewis in DeKalb County.
