Step 2: Register for your appointment online

To receive a vaccine from SGMC, you must register online for an appointment at one of our three sites. Please enter as much information as possible during your registration to expedite your vaccination process. Also, please download, print, complete and bring this form with you to your appointment.

If there are multiple people, please register each person individually.

Do not use the link below to schedule your second dose. Once you receive your first dose a different link will be provided to you to schedule your second vaccination.

Step 3: Report to your vaccination site

SGMC is currently providing vaccinations at three different locations in Lowndes, Berrien and Lanier counties.

The vaccination site is located at the SGMC Main Campus, Surgery Center Drive Thru at 2417 North Patterson Street in Valdosta, GA. Enter through the entrance off of Woodrow Wilson Drive and you will be greeted by SGMC staff and directed through the vaccination site.

1221 East McPherson Avenue, Nashville, GA

116 West Thigpen Avenue, Lakeland, GA

Be sure to wear a shirt that gives access to your upper arm – and don’t forget to wear your mask.

Step 4: Get your second dose

You must receive a second dose within 21 to 28 days after the first dose for the vaccine to be effective. Without the follow-up booster, the first dose is not effective and is essentially a wasted vaccine. You will be able to schedule your second dose appointment via your MyChart account after you receive your first.

Don’t forget to sign up for the CDC’s V-safe program to track side effects.

COVID-19 Vaccination Hotline is available Monday-Friday, 10am-3pm at 229-433-1068
