BRIAN KEMP: We are certainly excited to be receiving 174,000 doses of the Moderna vaccine this week. Dr. Toomey can speak to more specifics, but I can tell you this. This vaccine will be easier to deploy and store, and it will be going to hundreds of public-health sites, hospitals, pharmacies, and clinics all across the state to inoculate those health-care workers under the phase 1A program.

As we look to Christmas and the rest of the holiday season, I know that many Georgians are anxious to spend time with their loved ones. And believe you me, I am as well. But we are also pleading with Georgians once again to do the right thing and stay vigilant. Do not let your guard down.
