COVID-19 Vaccinations and Testing

Anyone with severe symptoms should call 911 or report directly to an emergency center for evaluation/testing.



The University System of Georgia recognizes that up-to-date COVID-19 vaccines offer safe, effective protection and urges all students, faculty, staff and visitors to get vaccinated and receive a booster. The CDC has published a webpage with information on determining whether or not your vaccination is up-to-date:

MGA encourages, but does not require all students and employees to get a COVID-19 vaccine and booster, although there may be exceptions to specific educational programs or departments.

Where to get a vaccine

There are numerous locations in our communities offering COVID-19 vaccines. The MGA Health Clinic has compiled a list of vaccination sites near our campuses, and the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) have a convenient vaccine locator available online.
