statement

“We are overseeing the Delta variant of COVID-19 overseas and are concerned about its high prevalence, especially among 12-20 year olds, a Marion County population that is lagging behind on vaccinations. Parents and Guardians: Now is the time to protect your children from COVID-19 and the potential spread of this more contagious variant of the strain in the US by making sure they receive both doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. “

Dr. Virginia Caine, Marion County’s Department of Health director and chief medical officer
