TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — South Georgia Medical Center has announced their latest vaccination efforts will happen at two new locations in Berrien and Lanier Counties.

So far SGMC has vaccinated over 4,000 people since vaccinations to the public began two weeks ago.

These news vaccination sites come on the heels of Lowndes County announcing that it will start canceling appointments due to not having enough doses to go around. SGMC Is now encouraging people in need of vaccinations to attend one of their clinics.

"We think it's important to be able to serve Lakeland and Nashville and these smaller counties that surround our area because we are a regional hospital and you shouldn't be penalized just because you live in a smaller town," said Erika Bennett with SGMC. "We think that it's important that we get as many people vaccinated as possible so that we can start to create that community of immunity."

SGMC will start vaccinations on Jan. 25 at 9:00 a.m.
