Political Rewind: A Call To Get Vaccinated As Ga. Hits New COVID Peaks; Big Names At GOP Fish Fry
Wednesday on Political Rewind: As the pandemic surges, public health officials are asking members of the public to get their COVID-19 vaccination to help stop the spread of the virus. An editorial column featured on the front page of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution echoed those sentiments, and called on readers to "save lives" by getting vaccinated.
Recent reporting revealed health care workers involved in vaccination efforts in Georgia are receiving threats and harassment because of their job.
In other news, big names in Georgia politics appeared at the annual 8th District GOP Fish Fry last weekend. It was another gathering that Republican Senate candidate Herschel Walker did not attend, while his three rivals did. Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger did not show, either.
