ATLANTA – Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner John F. King issued the following statement today regarding his recent deployment to the Navajo Nation in his National Guard capacity in the ongoing fight against COVID-19: 

“In light of my recent deployment to the Navajo Nation as part of the Department of Defense's response to COVID-19, I will be stepping away from my role on the COVID-19 Vaccination Distribution Task Force here in Georgia. However, I am confident that Governor Kemp and his team will make suitable arrangements to effectively implement our state's comprehensive distribution plan. Upon my return, I will travel the state to urge Georgians - especially those in our Spanish-speaking communities - to get vaccinated. Together, we will ensure a safer, healthier future for our great state." 


The mission of the Office of the Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner is to protect Georgia families by providing access to vital insurance products and safe buildings through fair regulation that creates economic opportunities for all Georgians.
