Ambassador Kelly Degnan: It is wonderful to come here to Central Republican Hospital and see so many Georgians here to get vaccinated today. The United States is very pleased to have been able to donate 500,000 doses of the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine and we are really pleased to see so many Georgians coming out now to register and to get vaccinated. This is very, very important, especially now that we see the Delta variant is here in Georgia and the numbers are going up. The vaccination is the best way to protect yourself, your loved ones, and your economy from the pandemic. So, again, I encourage people, please, come out, please get vaccinated. It is very important to get vaccinated. Again, the United States has been helping Georgia since the start of this pandemic and we want to help it in this phase too, the phase of vaccination. This is the one thing that will truly combat this pandemic and that is a safe and effective vaccine. Thank you! Thank you, get vaccinated.
