Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp has received his coronavirus vaccine.
For Kemp, it was “one and done,” as the governor received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine Friday afternoon at the Ware County Health Department in Waycross.
Kemp waited in line until he became eligible to receive the life-saving vaccine, which he was finally eligible for starting Thursday. Kemp traveled to the southeastern part of the state to again reiterate that the vaccines are safe and effective.
“Like thousands of other Georgians, I was thrilled to roll up my sleeve and get the Johnson and Johnson vaccine today – and I was proud to have my youngest daughter, Amy Porter, join me as well,” Kemp said. “We are both feeling great and are so thankful for the medical miracle that is literally saving countless lives here in Georgia and around the world. We encourage every Georgian to join us and help our state get back to normal.”
As of Thursday, March 25th, all Georgians 16 and older are now eligible to receive the vaccine.
