The Delta variant has already caused COVID-19 surges in other states, and it’s here in Georgia now. Thankfully, the difference between these surges and what we saw last year is the fact that we have access to a better weapon in the fight: the COVID-19 vaccine.
Next week, Northeast Georgia Physicians Group (NGPG) is hosting an event to distribute the vaccine to those 12 years of age and older who still need the shot, and NGPG is encouraging you to sign up now.

The rate of positive COVID-19 test results is on the rise, according to the Georgia Department of Public Health – just as it was before each of our three previous surges. If you’ve been waiting to make sure the vaccine is safe before you get the shot, rest assured that more than 4.6 million have gotten the vaccine in Georgia alone.
Unfortunately, more than half of our state still isn’t vaccinated, and that leaves us all vulnerable to another crippling spike. The vaccine is the weapon we didn’t have in the fight before, and we need everyone who is eligible to protect themselves so our businesses can remain open, our children can return to school and our communities can continue to recover.
