Cobb & Douglas Public Health has issued a news release this afternoon with links to the COVID-19 vaccine signup. When we tested the links a the Courier , the connection timed out, so the CDPH website might be still experiencing heavy traffic.

Dr. Janet Memark, the District Health Director at CDPH in a report at yesterday’s Cobb County Board of Commissioners meeting that their website was overwhelmed with traffic, and that the supply of vaccine available to CDPH was inadequate to meet demand.

If you can’t schedule an appointment with CDPH, try the link to the Department of Public Health website at the bottom of the page.

Here is the news release:
