New data shows many Black Americans remain hesitant to get Covid-19 vaccine

Syringes wand vials of the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine are prepared to be administered to front-line health care workers under an emergency use authorization at a drive-up vaccination site from Renown Health in Reno, Nevada on December 17, 2020.

As severe winter weather moves across the country, several metro Atlanta counties have been forced to cancel COVID-19 vaccine distributions amid supply chain delays. 

Cobb County officials reported that they have not received their expected shipments and will be out of vaccine before the end of the week.

Officials are set to contact those who have appointments at Jim Miller Park or Arbor Place Mall vaccine sites for Saturday or Monday to inform them of cancellations.  

For those who have already received their first dose, they will be contacted by county health officials by phone or email to schedule your second dose.
