Eligible individuals can make appointments using the online reservation system at publix.com/covidvaccine.

“At Publix, we know how important it is to be there, especially in times of need,” said Publix CEO Todd Jones. “We are grateful for the opportunity to provide this critical service to the Georgia community.”
