The North Georgia Health District prides itself on the relationships we have built within our community over the years. While our health departments have been working diligently to vaccinate all who are eligible, we have noted some gaps. We’ve reached out to several businesses and local trusted community leaders in hopes of raising awareness about COVID-19 vaccine. We appreciate all those who have assisted. Please note these vaccinated friends from our Latino community who want us to know, "¡Podemos Parar El COVID-19!"... We Can Stop COVID-19!
