The Georgia Fruit and Vegetable Growers Association (GFVGA) encourages its members to begin communications with local health providers so their farmworkers can get vaccinated.

This followed the announcement from Governor Brian Kemp that beginning Thursday, March 25, all Georgians aged 16 and older were eligible for the vaccines.

GFVGA continues to communicate with the Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH) regarding the urgency for farmworker vaccinations. Local DPH districts are beginning to plan for on-site and pop-up clinics. Your local DPH and health providers are the best source of information on when these will become available.
