Georgia passes up millions of vaccine doses as demand plummets

External News Details

Demand for Covid-19 vaccinations has fallen so dramatically in Georgia that the state has been turning down millions of allocated doses, telling the federal government to distribute them elsewhere. Joshua Weitz, Patton Distinguished Professor and Co-Director of the Interdisciplinary Ph.D. in Quantitative Biosciences in the School of Biological Sciences, is part of a team that’s attempted to estimate the level of immunity via prior infection and vaccination in the U.S. and in each state. Weitz estimates about 60% of Georgians have some level of immunity. But millions remain unprotected.
