Friday on Political Rewind: As Georgians eligible for COVID-19 vaccinations scramble to get them, Gov. Brian Kemp acknowledged demand is far outstripping supply. Kemp told reporters at a news conference Georgia has already received most of the doses the state was initially set to receive.

The new Biden administration will certainly play a role in vaccine distribution in Georgia and across the nation. Our panel discussed the new administration's plan to fight the coronavirus and whether it may begin turning the corner on the pandemic here and across the country.
