Earlier this week, Georgia Bio sent a letter to Governor Kemp requesting that the state consider certain biotechnology industry personnel who reside and/or work in Georgia to be considered as essential workers slated to receive a COVID-19 vaccine during the early phases of immunization. Specifically, we requested that workers involved in research, development, manufacturing and distribution of biopharmaceuticals and agricultural biotechnology products be included in Phase 1B of the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) framework in hopes of mitigating any disruption to our state and nation’s medicine and food supply during the pandemic.
