Earlier this month, Kemp said Georgians 55 and over, and those with certain medical conditions would be able to get the vaccine.

As of Monday evening, more than 3.2 million doses of vaccine had been given statewide.

Mercedes-Benz Stadium will soon be a federal mass vaccination site, being able to give about 6,000 doses a day.
