Funding of COVID vaccine administration by the US government has ended. HRSA declared April 5, 2022 to be the deadline, but the companies that process the claims stopped accepting the claims on March 30, 2022.

Message we received March 31, 2022 when trying to bill administration fee for shot given in February 2022.

We are currently speaking with the State of Georgia DPH to come up with the next step. We are desperately hoping that the Federal government will come to an agreement to at least pay for the shots already given. On April 5, 2022, a bill to extend funding was defeated in the US Senate. There are a couple of private insurers that have stopped paying for COVID tests as well. We have had two different insurers tell us to collect a $40 copay from the patient.

Despite the US government not paying for vaccines anymore, we will continue to hold COVID vaccine clinics at our store on Monday thru Friday 9-5 and Saturdays 9-1. Our vaccination hours can be found here. No appointment necessary.

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Premier Drugstore has administered over 23,230 vaccines. If you don’t need a vaccine, but would like a free COVID test, click here.
