Augusta vaccinators turn their attention to the young



AUGUSTA, Ga. – When Takiyah Williams, 19, of Grovetown was asked why she was getting vaccinated against COVID-19, she cut her eyes at her mother, Tasha. “I told her she needed to get it,” Tasha Williams said, as she sat next to her daughter at AU Health System’s Washington Square shopping center clinic, after both got their second dose of the Pfizer vaccine. “I am thinking it is best for us to be protected.” The challenge health officials have is now getting more younger folks like her vaccinated, including now 12-15 year-olds, as well as picking up others who have yet to get access or to accept it.
