SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – Students in the University System of Georgia (USG) now have access to 16 COVID-19 vaccination sites on campuses across the state.

According to USG, students can schedule a shot at the campus closest to them, whether or not it’s where they’re enrolled. Incoming students can also take advantage of the sites.

Officials say campuses have already administered tens of thousands of vaccine doses and will continue to ensure shots are available.
