What is the COVID-19 situation in Georgia?

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Georgia has been one of the hardest-hit areas in the U.S., ranking high among all states for positive case and death counts. It has also held one of the lowest vaccination rates in the nation 

How has CORE helped provide COVID-19 relief in Georgia? 

Since April 2020, CORE has been working with local partners to provide equitable access to COVID-19 relief, targeting marginalized and vulnerable populations who have been devastated by the pandemic.


CORE’s efforts in Georgia have been quickly adapting to community needs throughout the pandemic, and include operating a free mass COVID-19 testing site at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, an innovative mobile testing unit operation bringing services directly to communities, Case Investigation and Resource Coordination program, and a statewide mobile vaccination program. 

What are CORE’s current COVID-19 relief efforts in Georgia?

With our partners, CORE continues to operate a statewide mobile vaccination program that brings life-saving vaccines directly to marginalized and hard-to-reach populations across Georgia. Our local teams also run communication and community outreach, health equity services, and community mobilizer programs.

Adult and pediatric COVID-19 vaccines are currently available for all Georgians ages 5 years and older. We offer the bivalent vaccine and additional vaccine doses at all sites. Additional vaccine doses are for immunocompromised patients.  


Patients are fully vaccinated two weeks after one bivalent vaccine dose. One additional vaccine dose is available two months after one bivalent vaccine for immunocompromised patients. One additional vaccine dose is available four months after one bivalent vaccine for individuals ages 65 and older. It is safe to mix and match the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines.

We work with DPH and community partners to host 70 Mpox vaccination events in Metro Atlanta targeting highrisk communities. We also provide Mpox case surveillance throughout the state and benefits and resource coordination.  

CORE offers COVID-19 vaccination services supported by operations, health outreach coordinators, communications staff, local government, and community partners.
