As COVID-19 cases rise again, Gov. Brian Kemp took to social media Monday to urge Georgians to get vaccines.
“The patients that we’re seeing in the hospitals are predominately people that are not vaccinated,” Kemp said. “This is a great opportunity for you to talk to your medical professional, your local pharmacist, other people you trust about making a good health care decision for you.”
