Any teacher in Georgia is welcome to make an appointment.

You will need to bring proof of employment and that you live in Georgia.

“It is completely fantastic because it means we are moving along. And for me, it’s personally wonderful that it’s educators because my daughter lost her teacher and her teacher was my age. So it can happen to anybody. So it’s very exciting that we are now getting out there to get these educators taken care of as well,” said Chastity Van Dam, RN.

SGMC reminds everyone to check the appointment website daily.

Slots continue to open up with availability as soon as this week for those who qualify.

You can schedule your appointment online here.
