More than half of Cobb County residents are fully vaccinated — but there’s still an ongoing push to increase vaccinations for the county that’s currently experiencing a surge in COVID cases.

“While I am extremely concerned around communities of color, there’s a certain age group that I am more concerned about, which is our youngest people in our community who can’t get vaccinated,” explained Cupid.
