Dr. Gary Voccio, health director for the ten-county Georgia Department of Public Health Northwest Health District, gives us a cautiously optimistic update on the coronavirus in Northwest Georgia.

He also discusses public health’s Tuberculosis (TB) program. Before Covid-19, TB was the world’s deadliest infectious disease. For the moment, it’s just second.

Reminder: Everyone ages 5 years and older is eligible for a free COVID-19 vaccine, and everyone 12 years and older is eligible for a free COVID-19 booster. For more information, please call your local county health department.

COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective at helping protect against COVID-19, especially severe disease, hospitalization, and death.
