Publix Pharmacy is expanding administration of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine into Georgia and Tennessee. This is the first time the company is providing COVID-19 vaccinations in Tennessee and the first time providing the Johnson & Johnson vaccine in Georgia. It will be available at 21 Georgia and 23 Tennessee Publix Pharmacy locations.

Publix’s online reservation system opened at 7 am. Eastern time on March 23 for eligible individuals to schedule their COVID‑19 vaccination appointment.

At the direction of the federal government, retailers participating in the Federal Retail Pharmacy Program must continue to prioritize the following individuals for vaccine appointments until further notice:

  • Teachers, school staff and childcare workers who work in pre-primary, primary and secondary schools, as well as Head Start and Early Head Start programs (including teachers, staff and bus drivers).
  • Those who work as or for licensed childcare providers, including center-based and family care providers.

After those in the prioritized group are finished making appointments, any remaining appointments will be available to other eligible individuals.



Vaccinations are provided for any individual who meets state and federal requirements, with priority given to K-12 and childcare teachers and personnel as directed by the federal government. Individuals can find which groups are also eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccination by visiting their state’s department of health website:
