Georgia has hit two big milestones in vaccinating its residents against COVID-19: More than 4.5 million doses have been given, with more than 3 million residents getting at least one dose.
That includes 80% of senior citizens in the state.
“With all Georgians over the age of 16 now eligible for vaccination, we are making significant progress in getting more shots in arms – including 500,000 doses administered in the last six days,” Gov. Brian Kemp said.

Kemp’s latest executive order on COVID-19 took effect Thursday, rolling back the remaining restrictions on the state economy. The order eliminates a ban on public gathering and shelter-in-place requirements.
Distancing requirements in places like restaurants, bars and movie theaters also are eliminated.
