The vaccines will be available on Monday, Feb. 22, at Appling Inspection Site, which is located at 2355 Appling City Cove. Officials said these appointment availabilities are for anyone who has not yet been able to schedule an appointment.

In a press release, the health department said everyone with an appointment scheduled at Appling City Cove, the Pipkin Building, Germantown Baptist Church or SWTCC Whitehaven Center that was cancelled due to inclement weather will automatically be rescheduled to an appointment at the same location, same day of the week, and same time during the week of February 23 – 27, 2021.
