Cobb & Douglas Public Health (CDPH) will administer the COVID-19 vaccine at Jim Miller Park. It will be by appointment only, and registration details are at


This week’s phase of the vaccine, beginning January 7, will be for frontline healthcare workers.

Then on Tuesday January 12 the next round of vaccinations will begin, with eligibility expanded to include residents 65 years and older. For that phase, registration will open January 11.


The entire news release announcing the details is reprinted below: & Douglas Public Health (CDPH) will begin administering the COVID-19 vaccine to residents in Phase 1A on Thursday, January 7 at Jim R. Miller Park instead of the current site at the Marietta Public Health Center. Phase 1A includes healthcare personnel working on the front lines of the pandemic. 

A vaccination appointment system has been created exclusively for Phase 1A participants and they will receive an email from CDPH on how to register after they complete the enrollment form. Participants in Group 1A will be asked for proof of healthcare personnel status and priority will be given to Cobb and Douglas County residents.    

Beginning on Tuesday, January 12, CDPH will begin vaccinating residents in Phase 1A+. This phase includes public safety professionals and individuals age 65 years and older. An appointment system for people in Phase 1A+ will be available on the CDPH website beginning on Monday, January 11.

Jim R. Miller Park has served as a full time COVID-19 testing site since April 2020 and will now serve as a full time COVID-19 vaccination site. CDPH will continue to offer COVID-19 testing at satellite locations throughout Cobb and Douglas Counties.  Testing registration may still be found on our website at

Points to Remember: CDPH will administer vaccines by appointment only. Participants will be asked to remain on-site for 15 minutes for post-vaccination observation. No walk-up appointments are available – participants must remain in their vehicle to receive the vaccine and be accessible to clinical staff providing the shot.  Residents are also reminded that many healthcare providers, in addition to public health, are gearing up to provide this service across the county next week.

    • The registration opens for residents 65 and over on January 11. I’ll post the link here when it’s open. If you are a health care provider I’d phone the CDPH and ask them, since they haven’t publicly posted the link yet.

    If the website is down does that mean that no one is getting vaccine. I am concerned that everyone BUT the elderly, like over 80, will get the vaccine and we will be left out. Who is getting vaccine when the site is down

  16. Have tried several days without success, please give a website where I can get in line for my vaccine shot for Covid. My age falls in line with your regulations (81 years old)

  17. I have tried so many times to get an appointment for 1st vaccine for covid
    Have never been able to get the website to come up. I am 70 what do I do to get this to work?
